The house has been built on the island of Skiathos in Greece, at Profitis Ilias on a plot with a large inclination slope located 350.00m above sea level. It is in the limited zone allowed by law and within this zone in the smoothest part as possible.
The difficulty concerned the placement of the house on a sloping plot at the same time as the desire of the owners to have a unobstructed view and low cost budget construction.
The idea was based on the division of the building volumes and its opening to the sea, in a way determined by the natural lines of the ground, without the absolute correlation of the construction corners, creating a complex polygon in plan view. The layout of the building volumes seems random, but it is not. They are placed so that each area of the house has an unobstructed view of the sea from wherever the observer stand.
The house is developed on two levels at is oriented on the north-south axis with the main facade southeast. The dynamic lines of the building volumes delimit the internal functions of the building. The two levels can function as two small different houses.
The constructed space around the house is limited and organizes the necessary functions on one level, while it includes a relatively large pool for the area of construction. Part of this area is shaded by the pergola and the volume of the triangular prism of the first floor that protrudes.
The simple industrial materials such used meet with the purity of the place as the metal sunshades and concrete of the exterior floors. All railings are made of glass without intermediate supports, so that there is no obstruction between the eye and the horizon.
The austerity of the lines without unnecessary decoration materials combined with the dynamic volumes of the building in this work meets the simplicity of the local traditional architecture and to create low-cost contemporary architecture.
