greek architecture firm k-studio and berlin-based design studio lambs and lions have collaborated in casa cook chania, a modernist mediterranean resort situated on a hillside location along the cretan coast. the third manifestation of the casa cook resort brand in greece, which has already established itself on the islands of rhodes and kos, the hotel comprises 106 single-story villas complete with interlocking terraces that gently descend towards the sea.

k-studio and lambs and lions have developed casa cook chania as a series of brutalist structures clad in smooth concrete and timber, softened by the lush tropical softscape and woven cane outdoor furnishings. a muted palette of warm hues, combined with textured local stone and mid-century inspired furniture create an atmosphere of laid-back luxury. interior elements incorporate a mix of stone, dark timber, earthy textured linens and rattan weaves, that create 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.
