The Mykonos, Greece Villa.


So after a call that we here at djstormsblog.com put out to Greece, we began to get many an invitation to rent houses.  One of my personal favorites was a sea-side, villa, with pool, and turn-down service.  It was one of the most spectacular homes in Mykonos, but you can check out the full rental profile HERE.

300: Rise of an Empire


300: BATTLE OF ARTEMESIUM 300image 1529735_10153772354995472_664474875_o seize-your-glory-banner 1512735_10153634570730472_2092225564_n 976856_10152909306415472_138034456_o

Warner Bros. Pictures has brought online a new featurette that takes you behind the scenes of their upcoming 300: Rise of an Empire, opening in 3D, 2D and IMAX theaters on March 7, 2014.  Directed by Noam Murro, the film stars Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Lena Headey, Hans Matheson, David Wenham, Rodrigo Santoro, Igal Naor, Callan Mulvey, Jack O’Connell and Andrew Tiernan. Based on Frank Miller’s graphic novel “Xerxes” and told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster 300, this new chapter of the epic saga takes the action to a fresh battlefield—on the sea—as Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war. 300: Rise of an Empire pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), and Artemesia (Eva Green), vengeful commander of the Persian navy.

Elegant Villa F in Greece


general 03 04

Check out this stunning private holiday residence Villa F located in Rhodes, Greece. It was completed by HORNUNG AND JACOBI ARCHITECTURE, with a very unique architectural design that sets it apart from its rocky landscape. The site of the holiday home in Rhodes/Greece yet possess characteristics and outstanding qualities, which we only attempted to frame with our design. The site is located three meters above a coastal road, which is bordered by a natural stonewall that has been equally continued for our proposal. On the one hand the continuation of the found wall generates a high level of privacy, while on the other hand it relates to the given situation, which we were tempted to preserve as much as possible. The holiday home was designed for a couple. They wished a separate area for guests, which we mostly embedded in the given topography by integrating the shady tree population and without generating an equally visible volume.

The challenge in this design lies in construction and the involved climate technology. The construction of the building above ground is planned as a prefabricated timber structure finished with white plaster, which generates an abstract link to traditional old buildings close to that site. The lightweight construction was chosen because it will be mainly used for spontaneous short-term visits. Massive building parts were avoided to reach a quick cool down. Through a mechanically controlled opening in the roof a well-known chimney effect will be activated, which starts at the massive base plate in the garage from where integrated cable ducts lead cooled air through the building. An additional cooling effect will be provided by the evaporation of the pool. The triangle-shaped photovoltaics on the roof provides the building with energy and enables a self-sufficient living.
