Unifying a Triplex
The owners’ goal for this three-story building was a lightweight architecture of thin profiles, instead of a prevalent approach that interprets modernism as a set of monolithic gray volumes with smaller openings. At the same time we would like to retain for these triplex apartments the impression of a single residence, so the motif of repetitive balconies should be avoided. Our proposal is to use glass partitions so as to unify balconies of slim profiles and dynamic placement -a reference both to Takis Zenetos’ graceful apartment buildings and Richard Neutra’s Case Study Houses. The experience of a single residence is pursued by the incorporation of a double height planted patio on the ground floor (seeking to merge the garden with the building in Filothei, a suburb that is particularly distinguished by its gardens) but also with the formation of a double height living area, capable of maximizing the view of the trees of the garden.
