Τhe site of about 10.250m2 (0,10 ha) is located on the southeast part of the island on a semi-mountain area with amazing views to the sea. The landscape design approach is based on the thorough analysis and decoding of the special characteristics of the Cycladic landscape of the plot. The symbiotic relationship and osmosis between the anthropogenic environment and the natural landscape is a key concern and interest in the process of the synthetic design approach. The natural plant communities, the arid Mediterranean garden with minimal water requirements, the preservation of the views, the strong winds, and the Cycladic construction of the landscape with drums (tabania) and dry stone walls, the open clearings and the synergy with the architecture of the building were the basic design elements in order to create a Mediterranean landscape of well-being and sustainability.
