The site, a beautiful olive grove in the Peloponnese with an intense topography and a magnificent view to the messinian bay, was the starting point for the design of the three houses.

The three buildings were scattered on the site so that they could be close to each other but still have privacy. The site is traditionally terraced with stone walls and the three houses relate to these stone walls following the natural curvature of the mountain terrain. The buildings have the same general ethos but they were designed and adjusted to achieve the perfect fit for each specific spot constituting them different from each other, both in form and size. They adapt to the topography and their green color helps them to be even more integrated in to the olive grove and not be noticed from far.
