Achilleas Mourtzouchos had a dream of a summerhouse whose design 
alone, rather than any added-on decoration, made it beautiful.

A large group of extended family and friends spends much of the summer here as well as long weekends the rest of the year.

The getaway was a collaboration between the Mourtzouchos brothers and their longtime friends Dimitris and Konstantinos Karampatakis, of Athens’s K-Studio.

Achilleas says he had followed his architect friend’s career closely. “All I requested was two master bedrooms, one for Odysseas and one for myself, but otherwise I gave him total freedom. 
I trust Konstantinos completely.”

As well as stacked stone cladding and floor to ceiling glass, wood-formed concrete walls contrast with iroko wood floors and white marble stones in the texture palette of the house.
