The pergola house is located on a beach front plot of 4027 sqm, in the south coast of Crete.  All the areas of the main house have access to the central outdoor lounge area and pool. The guest house, is situated at a higher level than the main house, with unobstructed view to the sea. The main intention of the architectural design was to create a house that embraces the natural element of the hill. The plan was formed in a way that let us maintain an existing olive tree in the center of the estate, which becomes part of the house. The main sides of the building volume open up to the surrounding area, creating a space underneath a single roof, “The Pergola”. Living space, outdoor area and nature become one.
