Mykonos Grand Hotel

 


SITE ANALYSIS

Τhe architectural character of Mykonos, the overall landscape of the island, the memories of life depiction and the scenery of Delos, were the tools that finally inspired the LRA studio to fully design the landscape and the facades of the buildings of the 5 * hotel Mykonos Grand. Τhe local architectural elements used in the process of the landscape design for the total hotel areas, refer to the landscape of the island: rocks and white washed plaster, doors, dovecote, pergolas, handrails, outdoor recreation and chat (lane, seating area, rocks and low bushes). Initially, the major functional areas were organized, so to be established properly outside the room service areas of the hotel. The main parameter was all the regional activities (tennis, swimming pool, Theater, Church, walls etc.) to be adapted to the existing landscape and ground modelling, having as main objective the smallest possible optical distortion.
