Location: Sitia, Crete, Greece
Status: Conceptual Design
Area: 800 sq.m.
In collaboration with C. Tessas
The building is developed in two levels, each one hosting a different use. The lower level contains a self service restaurant, which primarily services visitors of the site and bathers, while the upper level hosts a traditional taverna with a more extended menu. The building design borrows elements from indigenous architecture, such as the shading mat from reeds, natural stone walls excavated from the site, as well as wooden decks thus promoting the sustainability of the project.
