Located on the Aegean island of Santorini, in the picturesque village of Pyrgos, lies Villa Fabrica – an old wine factory turned holiday retreat extraordinaire. Built in the local vernacular, the hillside property boasts spectacular views of the surrounding island all while nestling perfectly amongst the area’s characteristic medieval-narrow streets, fortified walls and hidden passageways.
The renovation / restoration was led by architect Yannis Kaklamanis and civil engineer Christos Kaklamanis of Palimpsest, with a meticulous emphasis on preserving the factory’s stunning traditional architecture. From the ingenious integration of the old factory’s machinery as sculptural art to the meticulous use of old style cements and eco-friendly materials… Villa Fabrica is quintessential Santorini – walking that beautiful line between past and present.
