Combining golden sand beaches, rocky hills and desert-resembling landscapes, Greece’s Mykonos Island is a heavenly place to visit during the summer. Part of the exquisite Hotel Andronikos located just 10 minutes’ walk from Mykonos town, the Cocoon Suites display an exemplary contemporary interpretation of unique vernacular Cycladic architecture seen in Greece. Plaster and cement-based flooring construct a world where glass and pebbles are reminiscent of the textured island itself and huge stretches of water, while bamboo canes were used to provide a natural sense of relaxation while embellishing walls and ceilings. KLab Architects pride themselves with a mixture of local charm, low budget and simple, clean inspiration.
