Proudly we present villa Selene; the proof that true luxury is found in the art of simplicity and that less really can be more. With views of turquoise seas and distant mountain ranges
Carved into rock and accessed by a private pathway you arrive and know that you have arrived somewhere special. Stepping inside you feel an immediate sense of peace. Gentle, romantic interiors were designed to create this relaxing atmosphere. White is the prime colour throughout, enhanced by subtle touches of colour here and there. Always just enough, and never too much, keeping true to the fundamental premise of the minimalist theme.
Designed by Brussels-based architect Olivier Dwek and will be completed early 2021, Villa Selene is a spectacular private holiday residence located on the Greek island of Zakynthos. Set upon a forested hillside, the structure responds to its breath-taking surroundings, offering uninterrupted views over the port of Agios Nicolas. Inspired by the late French artist Yves Klein and his monochrome paintings, Olivier Dwek placed a focus on infinite blue being the most important contextual element defining the house’s orientation, volume and spaces. The residence is divided between three levels with the lower floor comprising an entrance hall, living area with dining room and kitchen, swimming pool, terraces, patio and a bedroom, while the second floor houses the master bedroom and an extra guestroom. Creating a strong relationship between the site and its context, all the living areas are oriented towards St.Nicolas port seashore; meanwhile the ground floor living and dining rooms can be connected to the outdoor areas via large sliding doors, creating a smooth transition between the interior and the exterior. The house’s two exposed terraces are protected from the offshore winds, thereby allowing the occupants to use them throughout the day. Dwek’S clean lines and rectilinear forms create dynamic, geometry-geared perspectives framing the views, whilst the use of a bright white for the interior —for everything from walls to cabinets and linen— allows the gaze to wander across the soothing, ever-changing blue of the Ionian Sea.
Villa “Selene” will be ready spring 2021.
