This spectacular private residence was designed by Mario Gonzalez and Christina Malama of MGXM Architects and is located in Messinia, Greece. Completed in 2016, the home covers an area of 330 square meters.
The villa is actually comprised of two different structures joined together by a patio that, in the summer, turns into the most welcoming place, with a large swimming pool in which the residents can refresh themselves on those hot, sunny days. And the magic doesn’t end there. From the cool and comforting depths of the infinity pool we can admire the sea, as well as the Peak of Taygetus Mountain in the distance.
The home’s own landscaping program is simple and sparse, with even grass that adds to the home’s sense of isolation. Farther out, the rocky landscape, so characteristic of the Greek peninsula, is visible. Farther still, the sea.
The interior of the villa is spacious and airy, allowing for the easy movement of air and light throughout the home. While the exterior still has some rustic elements, such as rugged stone walls, the interior feels a lot more contemporary. All surfaces are smooth, as in the kitchen, where rich wood and pure white formica come together in a modern space, all sitting on top of glossy polished floors.
