The project concerns the construction of a new three-storey building with a basement and a swimming pool, in the area of Gerakas, at 106 Gargitou Street. There are two maisonettes developed on two or three levels and one studio located on the ground floor. Underground parking is also provided. The building is covered in a large part by a tiled roof. The passable part of the roof is planted and covered with a pergola, in order to protect the building from direct solar radiation.
The configuration of the facade has been studied with the following criteria:
-The solar protection of the houses with wood and metal shading systems, allowing free view from the openings.
– The creation of protected outdoor spaces for daily use.
– The finish of the external surfaces with exposed unplastered concrete.
The building is gently integrated in the shaped urban and natural environment, respecting the character and the scale of the area.
