Block722 Architects : 
This reconstruction and renovation project in Mykonos is truly custom-made. 
The intense environment of the island reinforced the decision to calm the somewhat loud 
exterior and achieve uniformity. By working with variations in levels, we achieved a natural
 circulation and demarcation of spaces. The original design lacked some comfortable resting
 spots, so it became a priority to offer multiple such spaces, along with the ability to
 choose depending on weather, time of the day and the mood.

 The guesthouse by the sea was renovated and extended with a private pool and
 a breakfast area, designed to give the guests the ability to enjoy the beautiful island 
mornings in privacy. However, the Greek habit of gathering around a grand meal was
 fortified as a large barbecue area was installed, along with a spacious dining 
area inside the main house.

All the furniture and the carpet patterns were designed by Block722 Architects. 
The bedroom and bathroom textiles were also specifically and carefully selected for this
 project, made from organic linen and cotton. Greek craftsmen site-built the braided
 daybeds and the headboard for the master bedroom. The natural materials and
 earthy tones were contrasted with reflecting items made from glass and
 metal such as the giant lamps over the dining table. 

All the outdoor furniture was designed with the ability to resist the reckless weather on 
Mykonos, like the tables made from over a hundred year old dehydrated elm timber.
 A final  touch, the rustic shading on the patio, offering shelter from the sun 
while also creating movement on the floor surface
