The study area is located in the region of Anatoli in Ioannina which is a residential area with low building factor and height. This is a new built area that mostly includes modern townhouses. Our main purpose is to create a modern urban park that hosts many different activities and is aimed at all social groups, creating a recreational area that attracts people of all ages from the whole region.
The architectural design is a combination of orthonormal and free stakeout. In the center of the square has been designed a central way from wooden floor as main axis that crosses the block, connects the two main roads of the block and forms the two main entrances of the square. The central part is designed with orthonormal engravings and used hard materials such crushed gravel and white concrete. Three pergolas have been designed made of metal, wood and concrete , under which seats are installed.
One of the shelters is also one of the two main entrances to the square. Below that is designed a fountain made of concrete for the convenience of users of the park. Around the central part has been created a route with engravings curves spanning all the square which is paved with blocks of granite. Along this route there are seats made of wood and concrete.
This course leads to two corners of the land. In one has been designed a curved low wall of concrete with benches, creating a space that can accommodate several people and then used for outdoor lessons of nearby schools and kindergartens. In the other corner there is a hill of grass with seats made of concrete that allows a great view of the lake. At the southeast corner of the block has been designed an open-air amphitheater with free engraving. Also on the northwest side of the park is proposed a play area for younger ages which is coated with fine gravel. Because of height difference of the site have been costructed walls made of reinforced concrete around the square and altitude difference have been covered with slopes of grass.
