Residence in Athens | Bougadellis Harry & Partners – Aeter

Description by Bougadellis Harry & Partners – Aeter:

The form of the building was dictated by the shape of the plot and its orientation. However, it remains simple by giving the impression of a “box”. The interior has large unified spaces, which allow autonomous movement and space organization.

A large opening on the rectangular volume allows access from the main spaces to a swimming pool connected to the building. The building was placed on the 640 m² landsite and it covers a total area of 384 m².

The large main openings for lighting and aeration of the main spaces are placed on the recessed side. For this reason, there is a vertical shading element protruding from the building line. The residence is deployed on the ground floor and two over ground storeys, while the basement accommodates M/E installations and car parking space. The ground floor hosts a unified living room, dining room and kitchen. The mezzanine floor accommodates a guest WC, the wardrobe and an office space. The first floor hosts the children’s bedroom with a bathroom and a living room. Finally, the owner’s bedroom, bathroom and wardrobe occupy the second floor.

The facades are cladded with travertine slabs, and the balcony parapets are cladded with wooden panels.
