House in Dionisos

A beautiful pine forest and a fine carpet of Mediterranean shrubbery are the main characteristics of the slope of the Pedeli Mountain. Unfortunately the area has mostly been developed with houses placed on their individual sites without any real reference to their surrounding environment.

Our aim was to create a house that reflects the character of the given lot, while maintaining the utmost respect for the natural surroundings.

By considering the building as a solid mass and incorporating the roof in to the walls we reconsider the archetype of the object-house and instead we create a more landscape-like house easy to integrate to the site. The house mimics the landscape and tries to camouflage itself becoming the extrusion of the natural clearing between the different clusters of trees.

The inclinations of the roof are designed after studying the sun path so that we would make the most of the solar gain in the winter and have full shade in the summer.

To maximise the experience, both from the inside out and also from the outside in, we subtract parts of the solid mass, forming voids that blur the limits and create new relations.
