Nissaki Stone Villa
Corfu, Greece / 2019
design team: Pavlos Xanthopoulos, Alex Michalas, Mara Kissa, Giorgos Kanakis
civil engineer: Antonis Gavalas
mechanical equipment: Hydron
The villa is situated in a lush environment with the local olive grove and the jaw dropping views of the Ionian Sea dominating the overall canvas. The aim was to respect the surrounding environment’s commands for a more traditional approach, yet through the combination and application of elements with a modern twist.
Local stone was the key material for the construction with a contemporary approach of the traditional stonehouse of Corfu. The high-ceilinged main living space, the tower approach for the bedroom section, the large infinity pool with its surrounding areas and the cave guest-house synthesize and blend the past with the future harmoniously, resulting in a magnificent property to live in.
