The main idea behind the design of this two-family house in Nea Erithrea, was to be closed and protected on the boundaries of the small plot, whereas opening and transparent in the center. The small yards offer continuous views and contact with the outdoor small yards, whilst all the main spaces overlook at each other creating transparent boundaries. The main circulation space stands in between the two atriums, connecting the two volumes and offering views to both sides. The boxes that emerge on the front façade offer small reading corners for the kid’s bedrooms.
Natural materials have been used throughout the house like cement, wood, metal and traditional kourasanit finishes on the facade that naturally mature over time.
The roof garden which has panoramic views to the sea, was formed into a sitting area with BBQ and small swimming pool.
