A modernist village
for the savvy traveler

Casa Cook Chania, Crete — Opening summer 2019

The resort is a choreographed interplay of light, shadow and texture, the smooth concrete forms gradually separate and transform into more brutalist structures that seem to emerge, almost mythically, from the sand.

Casa Cook, Chania

The third manifestation of the Casa Cook resort brand, Casa Cook Chania is a continuation of the brand’s image of laid-back luxury, this time adapted to suit the gentle hillside location on the Cretan coast.

The 106 single-storey villas – clad in concrete and timber – descend towards the sea in a visually arresting programme of interlocking terraces, graphic forms, and floating planes. The exposed concrete, muted palette of warm hues and the textured local stone echo the surrounding rugged landscape, allowing the project to contrast with the vernacular costal architecture.

The sharp angles and Brutalist abundance of warm grey concrete and stone is softened by the lush tropical softscape and woven cane outdoor furnishings. Within, a mid-century inspired interior features a mix of stone, dark timber and earthy textured linens & rattan weaves creating a relaxed private sanctuary for each guest. The architectural language of the buildings set along the coastline, including the beach club, concept store and pool transition to a bolder; more brutalist aesthetic, better prepared for the exposure to the sea and salt air.
