  • Let’s destroy the nature in favor of the rich tourists

    Matteo says:
  • Matteo, what the helll are you talking about? Oia is built like this, the houses, not only hotels. By the way, according to your mindset, we destroy nature EVERY SINGLE SECOND around the world for all kind of reasons. Sooo…. Relax.

    peter says:
  • Matteo,
    I am Greek. Santorini architecture is one of the best architectures of the world. houses and hotels build on the “caldera” not only preserves the environment but uses only the materials extracted by the local ground. this is an ancient technique, monitored right after the volcano explosion.

    xeno says:
  • are the aluminium window frames are extracted from the local ground ??

    Pedro Rogado (PT) says:
  • reminds me the Casapueblo (museum, art gallery, and hotel) in Uruguay.

    waldo says:
  • the bitch is in the detail… the spaces and volumes are very nice but then…. they had to stick cheap laminated floors, German style tight fiber glass windows and cheap out of the shelf furniture…
