Designed by the international architecture practice Lassa, the Ypsilon (or upsilon, used to refer to the Latin letter Y) shaped building appears to have seeped out of the ground with a green landscaped roof offering three distinct courtyards.  It is aligned to offer sea views toward Schitza, with further views to Sapienza, and the mountains to the east.  The structure nestles in the surrounding olive tree groves.

The 180 sq m interior was built-in seven months, using locally sourced concrete, terrazzo, and marble.
