Costa Navarino, a sustainable luxury destination located in Greece’s Messinia region, is slated to expand with the addition of three new sites. The facilities, including Navarino Waterfront, are slated to debut beginning in summer 2022 through 2023.
Navarino Waterfront at Costa Navarino will comprise more than 32 acres and 265 two-bedroom suites and beachfront bungalows crafted by Greek firm Tombazis & Associates Architects and London-based MKV Design. Designed by Athens-based K-Studio, an all-day beach club will anchor a lineup of amenities—including lagoon pools, a spa and health club, and a culinary square. Natural materials will characterize Navarino Waterfront’s simple modern design, with abundant stone and greenery accents used to echo traditional residential structures of the region. Plaster, concrete, metal, wood, marble, and reed will round out the materiality.
“The architectural study of the region was the reason behind a timeless design approach,” Tombazis & Associates says in a statement. “We would like the prospective guests to feel comfortable and familiar, to become one with nature, to explore the buildings, and discover elements of the architectural tradition that will bring them closer to the sense of place in this corner of Messinia.”
Navarino Waterfront will also be linked to the Agora contemporary public marketplace, which will host a mix of retail, gastronomy, and entertainment options including an open-air cinema.
