Our latest residential project
is located on a sloping hillside, 200 meters from the west coastline of Andros
Island. A sheltered space is designed, providing the panoramic view of the
dramatic landscape and the spectacular sea and sky. The primary design tool is
the wall element, providing both physical and symbolic protection.
From one side, the concrete wall
clearly distinguishes the common use areas from the private ones.
other side, the supporting monolithic stone wall, directly anchors to the
ground. Between the two wall elements a spatial interaction emerges. The
interpretation of the vernacular architecture is evident at the shading
element, following a familiar triangular pattern, commonly used on the façade
of the local dovecots.close
