Eco-Friendly Residential Project in Akrotiri
Chania, Crete, Greece / 2020
An eco-friendly residential project with low housing intensity, which blends into its surroundings.
Situated on a 8,000 sqm plot with a 25% site slop this 240.00 sq. meters property emerges modestly from the landscape in a sloping linear arrangement that respects the natural topography of the Akrotiri Peninsula.
The modest geometries and large openings act as plans of light of careful proportions that simultaneously capture and filter the views towards the sea.
All interior spaces are designed to provide direct access to outdoor areas while allowing sunlight to penetrate unconstructively throughout each space. Natural finishes, local stone, wood and cement dress up the space and add an authentic character to the interior areas.
