Residence in Italics
Τhe site is in Kantza, an agricultural area in the northern suburbs of Athens, with olive groves marked occasionally with oblong sheds of a small scale. The new house acquires an elongated northern facade along the street, one with few openings. Openings are mainly placed on the other (southern) side which opens up to the view of the olive grove. Upon entrance, guests are faced with an interior courtyard, a segment of artificial nature, reintroduced from the neighboring landscape. A kitchen benefits from this walled open air atrium while opening its other side towards the southern view. Living and dining areas are placed across the house, while a staircase intervenes at a pivotal position within the house. On the first floor bedrooms are to found while parking spaces and ancillary rooms are placed in the basement.
