The architects were influenced by the plains of Larisa, which they remember as an earthy rectangular puzzle. This is expressed in the geometrical lines of the building and the regularity of garden – organized into rectangular spaces with different species of plants.
The L-shaped building is situated at the edge of the site, permitting the optimum views from the garden. Wooden separations connect the exterior spaces distinctively with the interior. The approach from the road towards the residence develops with stages of disclosure, allowing parts of the landscaping to appear consecutively just as the view of the house is gradually revealed through the seasonal flowers which ‘conceal’ the entrance, transforming the route into a special experience.
The rugged bulk of the structure opens a dialogue with its surroundings, while the rhythm of the openings cater for the desired conditions of privacy and at the same time a visual connection to the view of the plains and the city, allowing a direct experience from different narratives which interact with each other.
