This modern family residence was designed by Polytia Armos Architects, deployed on three levels in order to better adapt to the sloping plot on the one hand and to facilitate the functional structure of the residence on the other. All the secondary rooms and the parking spaces are located on the lower level, the living space and the kitchen are on the middle floor which is leveled to the entrance of the building, whereas all the bedrooms and a multi-use office room are situated on the upper floor. The layout of the plan is divided in three main zones, all parallel to the slope, on the east-west axis. The south zone is found only on the upper floor and it hosts the children’s bedrooms while its volume covers the main entrance. The main living room and the dining space are located in the intermediate zone which is vertically extended to the roof from where abundant sun light enters through a skylight. The kitchen and an integrated secondary living room are found in the north zone. More information please visit the architect official website.
“One is pleasantly surprised when entering the residence. A huge transparent surface, similar to a cinema projection screen, “brings” all the view of the external environment in the house opening the residence to the outside. In this way the transition from the outside to the inside of the house drastically changes the appearance of the exterior of the building and the domination of walls which function as vertical screens.”
