Vermillion
Pyrgos, Santorini, Greece
+44 203 286 5400
An old winery transformed into a sleek Cycladic residence with panoramic vistas. Modern architecture has produced some real gems, homes that comfortable and functional and eye-catching all at the same time. Yet there is something distinctively romantic about an old building that even the sleekest modern home cannot imitate. This villa brings together the best of the two worlds. Once a winery, the structure has been thoughtfully transformed into an ultramodern 4 unit residence that still carries the allure of a bygone era. The exterior echoes the island's residential vernacular -cubic structures in different sizes painted stark to create a sharp contrast with the bright blue sky. Verandas and terraces fitted with lounge and dining arrangements and a swimming pool wrap around the house, some completely exposed to the views and some enclosed to offer protection from the winds. Pieces of the machinery that once belonged to the winery are used as sculptures that decorate outdoor and indoor areas. Inside the house, the mood is contemporary, with geometric furnishings, open spaces and large windows that invite the sunlight in. The palette is mostly white, leaving the extraordinary views to take centre stage. Elements of the traditional architecture -arched ceilings, walls with softened edges- have been incorporated into the new home to connect the past and the present. The villa's 8 bedrooms are divided into four units of different size.
