The Greek word kalesma translates to “invitation” and it’s a fitting moniker for an upcoming Mykonos hotel. Slated to open this summer, Kalesma calls on connections between sea and landscape, public and private. Shared spaces sit on a hill overlooking Ornos Bay, while scattered down the hillside are 25 suites and two villas “expressed in the vocabulary of local architecture: whitewashed rounded blocks, broken down into small-scale volumes,” says Dimitris Karampatakis, founding partner of Athens-based K-Studio.

Simple interiors by Studio Bonarchi combine brushed wood and brass details with earthy tones and textures that highlight the white exteriors. Adds Karampatakis, “We were clearly not aiming for a re-creation of an existing village, but an organic formation of one with the features that make it familiar: human-scale volumes enclose private life, but most of all, frame the outdoor experience of views, climate, and natural landscape.”
