About The Villa Olivia in Agios Tychonas
The villa has been designed and built with the highest quality and standards in mind. It’s not a developers’ villa; the villa was built by the owners for self residence so there was no corner cutting in the design and build process.
The architects’ brief was to design a villa to take advantage of the spectacular views and this has achieved with a great aplomb. The villa is L shaped, oriented to take advantage of the views, but the same time it is protected from excessive sun and wind exposure. There are masses of glass (low E value), which afford views from wherever you are in the villa. There are no “back” rooms, all rooms have a view; even the car parking area. Furthermore, the design brief for both the exterior and interior, was to create a contemporary, original and unique design which will not be excessive or extreme in its presentation, but to remain functional and practical in its application; and of course, to stand the test of time.
