Sidirokastrou House



280 m²

Under Construction

The design proposal concerns the synthesis of a multi-level house in the suburb of Anthoupolis, east of Patras . The main axis of the composition was the narrow site on which the design was to be drafted , as well the west view of the site.

The concept idea concerns the synthesis of a spatial condition ,where intensity is given on the higher level. This is achieved by creating two morphologically dissimilar volumes, which are arranged on top of one another, on the vertical axis. The goal was for the highest one to be perceived by passers-by as a dynamic spatial condition. Particular intensity is given to the volume from above, both due to its protrusion from the lowest volume on the three sides of the plot and the difference in their materiality. In this way, a larger area is exploited at the same time in combination with the avoidance of reducing the uncovered space. Characteristic of the volume from above are the semi-outdoor spaces on the three sides of the plot that offer views, as well as the sloping walls that create a sense of extroversion and visual freedom to the occupant inside.

The spaces of the house are structured on three levels. The auxiliary storage spaces are located in the basement, the ground floor responds functionally to the living spaces, which are structured in free plan, following the natural landscape that surrounds them, while the overnight spaces and the office space are located on the upper level, taking advantage of the privacy given by this volume.
