“To rise all senses through authentic and timeless experiences”
Block722 is an Athens-based architecture studio, founded in 2009 by architect Sotiris Tsergas and interior designer Katja Margaritoglou. The team combines Greek and Scandinavian heritage, as well as interdisciplinary experience, and creates work that feels confident, natural, and timeless.
At the south of Lefkas Island, the yachting paradise of the Ionian and the Little Ionian islands, secretly lies the majestic yet humble Villa Apollon. Created by using a contemporary architectural principal, the villa is subtly blended into the hillside landscape of Vasiliki bay. Visually entered from the wild green forest area, slowly descending to a rocky beach until eventually submerging under the emerald waters of the Ionian sea.
Named after the ancient Greek god of light, Villa Apollon is cleverly designed to embrace the natural light inside and outside. Oriented west facing towards the luminous seafront, the residents can enjoy hours of sun and unrivalled, spectacular sunsets.
The villa captures perfectly the essence of the island through the simplicity of its design and highlights the beauty of the natural landscape. The serenity that the villa offers enters into the soul making way for the mind to be cleansed and to rejuvenate. The external areas allow the body to relax, either from listening to the water falling from the infinity pool, or by meditating on the yoga platform.
All materials and textures were specifically chosen to give the romantic essence of the local and simpler past ensuring at the same time that all modern luxuries of contemporary living and vacation are incorporated.
