It is located in Greece.
The location of the Summer residence in Pyrgos promises something interesting and somewhat traditional. The complex shape and the development plan allow you to divide the residence into three separate houses, each with its own outdoor space.
The first floor consists of main living / dining room, main kitchen, two bedrooms, a bathroom and a kitchenette. Three bedrooms with bathrooms are on the upper floor, in the basement there are auxiliary facilities, bathroom and garage. The main idea of the design was the artificial formation of a monolithic volume that is installed at a random place of the landscape, blurred by time and natural elements. Part of the composition is rotated at different angles, elsewhere separated, leaving half open and the outer passages between them.
The architectural form of the residence has links to the traditional vaulting of Santorini, an old fortified tower outside the castles of the island and the metal cantilevers used in old quarries for the extraction of pumice stone — all part of the architectural history of the island subtly combined and integrated into a single integral and monolithic structure. The bearing structure of the building is made of reinforced concrete, for the walls were used by the local black stone, bricks and insulation, as well as colored stucco coating and exterior flooring.
