Text description provided by the architects.

Blending into a 12,000 sqm site in Karpathos, three villas were designed by A&M to make their appearance in the most humble way. With a 23% site slope, the villas emerge from the landscape in a linear arrangement parallel to the view, respecting the natural topography. A true relationship between indoor and outdoor, integrates the building to its surrounding.

Built partially underground, the geometry and materiality return to their original state and the buildings are able to blend with the rough context. White, clean ribbons become retaining walls creating the only contrast between the artificial & the natural. The villas are designed in simple geometries with large openings, allowing the stunning views to Aegean Sea to be the focus of this journey.
