Place is something we love.
Place creates experience, and brings together friends, families, intellectual peers.
Place is where life happens.
The Artistry of Place
Each place where people are going to live, work, or visit, sets the stage for countless spectacular stories. Each place deserves the artistry of a handcrafted sculpture, a work of art, with the comforts and playfulness of a childhood home. Place deserves the possibilities of an adventure story, opportunities to climb mountains or discover another side of yourself.
We pursue the creation of place with this zest. We find that the more time and attention you invest into place, the more fabulous, diverse, and artistic it becomes. Each place we are creating has the benefit of being designed and redesigned attentively by artists and designers.
Quality > Quantity
We experiment with ways to use each place we adopt into our fold, creating content to document the ideas we work with, valuing as much the research and idea creation of this process as the creation of place itself. In this way, we focus on quality, not quantity, and subvert the capitalist perception of real estate, focusing on the value of shared place and ideas instead of scale.
With each place we are financing, developing, and managing, we will continue to create content, and welcome idea exchange. This creates a nucleus of ideas, permeating the community around us with rich new forms of inhabitation.

Growing with Tech
During this phase, to create a seamless system for each location's management, and to open up investment opportunities for further developments, we will be developing a platform that will allow our guests to book stays with ease, whether living in an Anamakos property, or staying at an Anamakos hotel. An internet-based hub will allow us to centralize the data and research we collect on each site, and create a hub for conversation around our idea creation.
