The plot is located at the island of Myconos in the Cyclades. It has orientation in the small side Northerner, with view to the sea. The project concerns a summer house with guest houses and a pool. The place of the residence is to benefit of the view to the Aegean Sea. The building is preexisting and the proposal concerns the designing of the interior and the exterior – landscape and pool. A large courtyard is designed in order to accommodate a long lap  pool and the sitting area. Stone walls are created to protect from the prevailing north winds. The setting of the exterior walls on a Π shape courtyard provides the best view towards the Aegean Sea and accommodates a comfortable exterior living area. Long stone walls form areas of gathering, eating, lounge and enclosures for the privacy of the bedrooms on the ground floor. Thus the building is adapted to the arid Myconian landscape stretching along the site. On the interior, design features from well known artists as well as sculptural forms are used to create a relaxing space that accommodates a family with its guests. The aim to design a resort house with the minimal intervention and the shuttle use of the existing is achieved by using elements such as Wooden decks, treated cement textures, stone plastered walls and light wooden pergolas .A canvas is created on which the house transforms to a sensual habilitation of the landscape.
