‘MASTORAS‘ Βeach Bar & Restaurant

'MASTORAS' Beach Bar & Restaurant  is a restaurant literally on the beach, on the main street of Stalida. Our goal was to create an inspiring yet relaxed atmosphere that perfectly suited the location. The restaurant is located on the road and goes downhill reaching the sandy beach. That is why we have ensured easy access for the disabled at all levels. The main intention was to integrate important traditional elements in an ultimately modern space with boho elements. A second key compositional element of the proposal was the achievement of an unobstructed view. The space, following the natural topography, was formed in levels, in such a way, that the visitor can have a direct visual relationship with the sea from every point of the space. The combination of these, purposefully designed and natural elements creates a multi-sensory architecture that sits in harmony with the environment, provides a natural, comfortable refuge from the elements and creates an engaging, social atmosphere. We retained the existing stone, adding earth tone tiles and natural insulation to the natural wood and wicker pergolas, creating a unique character, with a relaxed palette of natural tones that emerge as you move from the upper to the lower level, linking them together.
