The peculiarities of the plot, featuring small width and big depth, the functional requirements of the owners as well as relatively indifferent view to the street determined the basic design factors of this residential complex. An “introverted” building was thus designed, with the interior spaces having the best possible contact with the respective outdoor areas of the complex with the help of a smooth transition through semi-outdoor areas. The building as a whole is arranged in a “P” shape, at the core of which is the main pool, as a reference point of the whole synthesis, being at the same time a meeting point of the complex’s tenants.
Due to the building’s large volume, an attempt was made to split this vast mass both by the method of abstraction and with the combination of different materials as well, achieving the desired micro-scale and integration of the building with its surrounding environment. Thus, while towards the street a second skin acts as a building’s filter, towards the pool the building opens through large sliding doors, unifying the interior with the exterior.
The façade’s white plaster colour is combined with the cladding of beige sandstone marble slabs, while the use of wood in pergolas, vertical blinds, the property’s boundary wall as well as the indoor and outdoor floors is also evident.
