An additional set of images from the Rinela Restaurant at the Mitsis Rinela Beach Resort & Spa in Crete Island Greece designed by Elastic Architects, added to the collection. Full set can be viewed here.
Elastic Architects were chosen to undertake the revamping of the outdoor pool and restaurant of Mitsis Rinela Beach Resort & Spa, in Kokkini Chani, Crete. The unobstructed sea views combined with the strong sun over the Cretan landscape, informed the architectural thinking. Functionality and integration of the custom-made furniture to the landscape was of outmost importance to the brief. The shadows casted by the wicker pergola amplify the natural materials chosen, and offer a constant transmutation of the space throughout the day. In continuity to the restaurant, the outdoor pool follows similar design ideas, highlighting the infinity views to the Aegean Sea.
