Inside Mykonos most stunning houses

Where Cycladic traditional architecture and minimal

geometric lines meet.

 

Houses in Mykonos feature the distinguished Cycladic architecture, built in a cubic scheme and whitewashed, with wooden windows and doors painted in intense colours, flat roofs and flowered balconies.

Mykonos town is a prime example of Cycladic architecture. Even the noted architect-town planner Le Corbusier admired its harmony and the artistry of the self-taught master builders who constructed it over time. The narrow alleys are also lime washed, so they have a bright white colour. The special characteristic of the architecture in Mykonos, which slightly differentiates from the rest of Cyclades, is that the houses have a smooth and asymmetrical shape on their corners, attributing a perfect harmony to the whole form.
