Minimalism, smooth surfaces, clean lines and delicate colours are key elements of the design of Taormina by Ritmonio for the Elia Mykonos Resort. Only a few steps from the crystalline waters of the Aegean Seam, the project was completed by Chorografoi architecture & design.

The brief was to develop the common areas and suites around a single outdoor point whilst preserving the formal coherence of the new construction with the existing one. A key directive was to enhance the functionality of the entire structure, protect privacy and allow guests to enjoy the extraordinary view of the surrounding landscape and the clear waters of the Aegean Sea.

Chorografoi architecture & design responded by drawing inspiration from the construction traditions of the Cyclades. Minimalist, smooth surfaces, clean lines and delicate colours, plus a skilful use of natural materials – such as bamboo, wood and the typical stone with white plaster- has made this space one of the island’s most desirable seafront accommodation facilities.

The complex is spread over a total area of approx. 4,775 m2, on two levels: the swimming pool and relaxation area are located in the internal courtyard; the reception, 24 suites, a business centre, spa, gym, and restaurant have been developed around it.

The rooms on the ground floor have direct access to the swimming pool via a private courtyard, while the five suites on the upper floor all have a terrace. From here, the gaze can wander freely between the beach and the sea for an unparalleled wellness experience.

The pathways around the resort have been specially designed to protect the safety and tranquillity of guests. Olive trees, spruces, and aromatic herbs characteristic of the area delimit the spaces and create these passages, embellishing the environment.

Aimed at finding a new balance between form and functionality, the TAORMINA series by Ritmonio was selected as the most suitable choice for the suite bathrooms.

From the built-in wall units to the shower heads, TAORMINA revisits classic elements in a contemporary key, with graceful lines that embody the true expression of ‘Made in Italy’ by Ritmonio: the body of the washbasin mixer recalls the shape of the characteristic columns of the Ancient Theater of Taormina, and its gentle lines refer to the sinuous inlets and the waves of the sea.

Clean lines are enhanced by the Brushed Black Chrome finish, which fits perfectly into the design. In addition, the series is part of the water-saving Ritmonio product range, with an ECO water flow rate of less than 9 l/m; they have been designed to raise awareness of the responsible use of environmental resources.
