voula apartment building III

  • This apartment building in a seaside neighbourhood of Athens consists of a ground floor and a top floor maisonette with two apartment floors in between. Each floor has been designed in such a way that the impression is given of a single house, independent visually from the other floors, but at the same time the sculptural design of the building maintains a unified appearance.

    The ground floor apartment focusses on the private garden at the back and both the apartments and the top floor penthouse orientate themselves towards the view, creating a raised garden level of its own.

  • Το κτίριο διαμερισμάτων στη Βούλα αποτελείται από τέσσερεις ανεξάρτητες ιδιοκτησίες: από μια διόροφη μεζονέτα στο ισόγειο και στο υψηλότερο επίπεδο αντίστοιχα, και δύο οροφο-διαμερίσματα σε ενδιάμεσα επίπεδα. Το κτίριο, με κατακόρυφη ανάπτυξη λευκών πρισματικών όγκων, έχει σχεδιαστεί με τέτοιο τρόπο ώστε κάθε διαμέρισμα να δίνει την εντύπωση μιας ενιαίας κατοικίας, ανεξάρτητης οπτικά από τους άλλους ορόφους. Ταυτόχρονα όμως η έντονα γλυπτική αντιμετώπιση των όγκων διατηρεί μία συνοχή στην εμφάνιση, τονίζοντας το σύνολο της σύνθεσης.

    Έτσι, λειτουργικά, η ισόγεια μεζονέτα στρέφεται προς τον ιδιωτικό κήπο με πισίνα στο πίσω μέρος του οικοπέδου ενώ το ρετιρέ και τα δύο ενδιάμεσα διαμερίσματα προσανατολίζονται προς την απεριόριστη θέα της θάλασσας.
