A luxury club on the coast of Mykonos
LoT – an architecture studio led by Leonidas Trampoukis and Eleni Petaloti – recently completed Guilty Beach, a luxury club on the coast of Mykonos, Greece.
Mykonos’ vernacular architecture incorporates elements of ‘cool’ design comprised of white walls, shading devices and perforated screens which improve people’s comfort in the hot climate by increasing cool surfaces, shade and air movement around them. LoT use similar ‘cool’ materials, design elements and visual techniques in Guilty Beach, from marble table-tops, to steel mid-century sun shades and crisp blue pool water, which when combined, create a refreshing and sophisticated scene. Aside from their cooling effects and reference to traditional Mykonos building, materials also manipulate spatial perception by creating visual filters and adding complexity to an otherwise simple design.
