The project "Beach Front Villa" concerns the design of a holiday home in the area of Apokoronas, Chania, on the beach of Keras.

The aim of the project was to design a luxurious residence with unobstructed sea views. In addition, due to the location of the plot, the aim was to ensure a smooth descent to the beach of Keras, enhancing the holiday experience.

The seaside plot has an area of 6 acres, north facing, with an altitude difference of more than 10 meters from the road to the beach line. The large difference in elevation creates two distinct levels, which led to the separation of the building into two floors, with a total area of 550sqm.

The terrain and orientation towards the sea determined the layout of the building and specifically led to a parallel, staggered arrangement in order to ensure an unobstructed view from all levels.

The basement section has a surface area of 193sqm, includes the underground parking area, and can accommodate the auxiliary functions.

Regarding the design of the facades, the creation of large openings on the view side, combined with the landscaped semi-outdoors and the characteristic canopies, give the feeling of an open, borderless residence that subtly emphasizes its presence in the landscape. The materials proposed, a combination of stone cladding with coloured coatings in warm tones, dark metallic elements and wooden surfaces attempt to create an atmosphere of earthy, warm and at the same time luxurious.

The proposal for the interiors is characterized by the colour contrast of white and dark tones, which gives a modern and quiet elegance, dominated by the sea as a background. The proposed furniture and lighting fixtures incorporate the curve as a dominant element, aiming at a sculptural harmonization of use and design.
