The extensive open spaces on the Greek islands become ideal canvases for outstanding architectural works. We saw fantastic creations that either stand out or blend in with the expansive landscapes. 314 Architecture Studio takes the latter approach as it proposes a project called the Gods and Dreams Resort.
So far, the pictures show us a series of terraces cascading along a vast hill. Without the lights, reflective mirror surfaces, pools, and sculpted edges of each level, the structure merges with the background. In addition, the abundance of green and the generous use of curves make the entire place look organic.
This combination of elements promotes relaxation for those staying at Gods and Dreams Resort. Instead of building everything from scratch, they use the natural topography to design the residences. The slopes and floor-to-ceiling glass windows use the natural light of the sun.
The overhangs also provide shade, depending on the time of day. Mirror partitions separate each apartment into its own paradise with vegetation and a flowing pool. The Gods and Dreams Resort seems to be surrounded by nature somewhere.
We know some of you would give anything to spend a week or two here. Not many can wake up to breathtaking views such as the Gods and Dreams Resort offers. Generous living rooms and open floor plans offer even claustrophobic guests quality relaxation. Put simply, 314 Architecture Studio takes its design inspiration from the old amphitheatres.
