Just three suites of different sizes, and large shared areas for spending time in contact with nature. Perched amidst the terraces of Mount Pelion, Peliva Nature & Suites overlooks the water of the Pagasetic Gulf in Greece, filled with light and wind. The architects of the firm G2lab – Giannis & Giorgios Effthymiadis – have designed a small series of essential volumes organized on multiple levels with open loggias, connected to each other by pergolas in wood with cane matting, walls and pathways in stone and concrete, together with teak decks and large ceramic slabs.
Shaded spaces become the main architectural focus, offering exceptional views of the gulf. Natural extensions of the shared zones, which beside a grove of age-old olive trees narrate a design approach made of natural materials and neutral tones, ready to create a light Mediterranean atmosphere.
Everything blends harmoniously into the landscape, even the infinity pool and the solarium, as well as the rooms – from 32 to 50 sqm in size. With walls in raw concrete and stone, alternating with plastered portions, the spaces feature wooden beams and stoneware flooring in a large format, or dark wood floors with a herringbone pattern.
Design becomes a presence in the furnishings, without contradicting the spirit of the place. As in the kitchen with lower and upper cabinets in heat-treated natural oak or black coated metal; tables and chairs in cord or rattan; carpets woven with geometric motifs; textiles in hues of ecru and dove gray, like those of the earth.
The bathrooms follow the same palette of neutral hues, alternating various shades of gray with beiges, and the presence of details in natural oak and rattan. The designers have chosen Teso, the décor radiator by Dante O. Benini and Luca Gonzo for Antrax IT, as a mediator between tradition and contemporary style. Made in 100% recyclable extruded aluminium, Teso comes in a double vertical version, with two modules 25 cm in width, by a height of 150 cm. The sandy tones form a contrast with the anthracite gray of the slender vertical metal arm that serves as a towel rack.
