Hansen, Mixed Use Building in Athens, Greece by AREA, Architecture Research Athens

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

Article source: AREA, Architecture Research Athens

This project redefines the mixed-use housing typology of the “polykatoikia”, ubiquitous in Greek cities, in one of the most dense urban neighborhoods of Athens’ center, Patissia. An L-shaped plan is dictated by site orientation and adjacent building mass, creating a small garden to the South. The vertical arrangement of different programs, typically integrated behind a uniform facade of duplicate floors, is articulated here as a “sectional” facade: individual floor levels appear to extend different lengths along the street, varying the relationship of closed to open space at each floor. Along the street, the mass of the building is lifted to provide broad visual access to the private garden, and allow room for two vehicles. At each level of the building, an exterior or transparent space \”bridges\” the street to the backyard along the East party line, whereas the most sheltered interior spaces are concentrated along the opposite party line. This results in a double strategy. On the one hand, the careful manipulation of the building code incorporates a pilotis, a pergola and covered outdoor spaces, creating a porous civic facade that subverts the requirement for the building’s mass to continue that of its neighbors. On the other hand, the near-absence of protruding balconies brings the building’s interior closer to the realm of the street.

Art in every aspect of space in Athens, Greece by Golden Ratio Collective Architecture

Friday, May 20th, 2016

Article source: Golden Ratio Collective Architecture

In the region of Kifissia, a three-storey house is renovated and decorated proposing a new lifestyle. Linear blinds act as a unifying element of space, while individual functional units are formed: espresso point, breakfast, living room. Boundaries are expanding due to the view of the garden and the surrounding area, where a swimming-pool is going to be constructed. Textures, colors and shapes are being juxtaposed, creating a game of contrasts and reflections. Warm wooden textures and smooth vertical surfaces co-exist, giving space a unique identity. Horizontal leather blinds filter natural light and determine outdoor views, allowing space to evolve during the day.

Nadja in Athens, Greece by Point Supreme Architects

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

Article source: Point Supreme Architects

Nadja consists of two apartments on subsequent floors that were renovated and connected with a stair in the middle.The two levels are materialized as opposite spatial experiences. The lower level is a continuous, marine-like environment with big pieces of furniture anchoring the family’s communal activities like floating islands. Instead of the typical division of rooms for kitchen, dining, living and playing, spaces in Nadja are flexible and look towards each other.
