One particular of our all-time favourite posts from the Remodelista archive? A Greek Architect’s Ode to Minimalism, architect Theodore Zoumboulakis’s personal kitchen in his family’s retreat on the isle of Hydra. So we weren’t way too astonished that a different undertaking we’ve been admiring not too long ago is by the exact hand: Zoumboulakis himself.
Nikolaou Residence, on the Greek island of Aegina—just just one hour from Athens—was formerly the property and studio of the painter Nikos Nikolaou. According to the Home: “Nikolaou and his spouse Angela settled in Aegina in 1964, and their dwelling turned a standard haunt for art enthusiasts and intellectuals. Renovation do the job began in 2019, with the refurbishment of the property and grounds and the development of 5 guesthouses,” overseen by Zoumboulakis Architects. “Starting from the entrance room—originally the painter’s first studio and afterwards his sitting down room—and based on the photographic documents and the family’s reminiscences, the idea was to restore the numerous objects and artworks in their original place and therefore reconstruct the atmosphere in which Nikolaou lived.”
Now, the Home and its guest residences are offered for stays among the olive groves. “Guesthouse inhabitants can delight in the sunset sitting down on the stone benches in which the Aegina ‘gang’ employed to meet up with each individual afternoon,” including Nikolaou and the Greek artists and poets Yannis Moralis, Christos Kapralos, and Odysseas Elytis, according to the Home. Also obtainable? Visits to Nikolaou’s preserved Atelier—and to the Temple of Aphaea close by.
