Skopelos Suites II is about a 2-storey building with 2 rooms and a lovely back yard. The main aim of the design team was to create a cozy holiday house which combines traditional and modern details.
The main building materials and the color palette of the project are according the tradition and the characteristics of the island. Both the exterior and the interior walls are painted with natural powder kourasanit in earthy and off-white colors, the traditional wooden doors and windows are painted in grey blue and the lighting fixtures are mainly from natural materials or minimal metallic forms. The inside floors are covered in oak wood boards and stone tiles in the same color tones. Most of the furniture are custom made creations from wood or metallic elements or they are carefully selected to fit in a summer house.
The attractive element of this project is the yard which is not common for buildings like that in the center of the island. The exterior space is designed as an extension of the inside space. The different elevations create interesting new uses such as a big outside living room, cozy small corners with boho elements, flower beds and a shower on a deck platform.
