This project is about two detached family houses in Koropi area, Athens. The houses are located in the northwest of the building site -near to the public road- and the garden in the south. Each residence consists of four levels. The living areas and the kitchen are located on the ground floor of each house and the bedrooms on the upper levels. The different uses of each level form three different zones on the facade of the building. The top zone is the most characteristic one, because of the prismatic shape of the building above its base. This dominant architectural feature of the houses has big openings that visually connect two levels of the house and enable natural ventilation and daylight into the building.
The main entrance of each residence, leads to the living room with views to the garden. On the same level the dining room, the kitchen and a guest WC are located. On the first floor there are the bedrooms and the bathrooms. The staircase and the hallway are placed in the northern part of the house isolating the noise of the town from the bedrooms. On the third floor there is a loft as an auxiliary space.
The main material of the outer shell of the building is the white finish on the walls, combined with HPL-Oak cladding and mirror glass surfaces. The aesthetics of the interior spaces are similar to the exterior. White surfaces, oak-timber flooring and glass form the interior design.
Finally, the plot has been landscaped with planting and trees, outdoor sitting areas and BBQ. The shared back yard of the two detached houses offers to the owners a space of relax and calmness.


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