What I can see

This contemporary residence was built on a 130sqm steeply sloping plot. It has a total area of 350sqm and is developed in 3 main levels and 3 units. The first unit is the basement and the ground floor, which is externally clad with stone, exposed brick and has small openings, so as to look like the continuity of the area’s rock. The second unit includes the superstructure of the south side with trellis frames and trellis sheets for sun protection, which are the most distinctive feature of the building and make the “connection” between the contemporary design and the architectural identity of Ano Poli. The northern part constitutes the third unit; it works as a “background” for the other two units and is similar to the architectural style of Ano Poli. The gaps in the superstructure are covered by transparent materials that allow natural light to flow inside.

What I can't see

The architectural design is by Anastasios Kotsiopoulos and Elisavet Halkiopoulou. The residence was selected among the 1000 best buildings in the world for the period 1999-2004 and was included in the “Phaidon Atlas of Contemporary World Architecture” (2004).
