The residence is located in Drafi, in one of the highest points of this area, overlooking half the Attica area and the Gulf of Saronicos. It is a residence deployed on two levels – one of them semi-underground – exclusively planned to cover specific needs. Each level houses a different member of the family, and all of them meet on the level of the swimming pool. Three main building volumes, two with single-sided roofs and one with a roof in the shape of a regular pyramid, constitute the whole with the use of wooden joints. The floor plan has an L-shape, embracing the pool. The main planning target was to organize a residence, so that it may serve simple living needs and satisfy the need for “direct contact” of everyday life with the natural ground.


Architecture emerges out of careful analysis of how contemporary life constantly evolves and changes.
