The site of this project is located in Megalohori, one of the oldest and best preserved villages on the island of Santorini. It is a neoclassical building built in the 18th century by a navy captain. This was a stately and distinguished construction style that was used by the wealthiest people of the time.

In the semi-basement floor there are typical vaulted chambers (thólos) where cereals, wine, oil and other goods were stored. The upper floor was intended for housing.

The commission consisted of adapting the existing buildings and environment to turn them into an exclusive hotel with few rooms. Thus, the public program (reception, bar-restaurant and a small spa area) has been accommodated in the semi-basement chambers, reserving the first floor for the guest suite rooms. In the garden, some old half-ruined sheds have been used to transform them into more intimate and independent rooms. In the rest of the land there is a swimming pool and an open-air bar.
