On a wind-sheltered hillside, full of prickly pears, reed, vines and old olive trees, overlooking Ornos bay, is located the luxury villas complex “Ornos Retreat”. The complex consists of four private villas, Althea, Argus, Astarte and Angerona. The villas are semi-detached from one another, yet each has its own private outdoor setting and entrance, while three of them feature a private pool.
The location of each villa within the relief was a difficult choice. The multidimensional volumes were positioned amphitheatrically according to the elevation var-iation of the ground, creating an unstoppable play of light and shadow. Simple material –stone and wood- fully incorporated into the Mykonian architecture.
Among the villas there are stone-built benches, sheltered from sun and wind by wooden pergolas, which call guests to spend peaceful private moments while enjoying the unique view to Ornos, Korfos and Tinos Island.
The water element counterbalances the wild beauty of the Mykonian landscape. The pools are placed so that combined with the outdoor benches offer an oasis of peace and relaxation throughout the day, while giving a peaceful atmosphere to the villas.
The end result cannot rival the landscape but it complements it gracefully.
