Blue House

Architectural study of a two-house building and an underground garage, Gerakas, Attica


There is a Ground floor house and a Mezzanine on 1st and 2nd floor.
The facades have mixed-orientation NE, SW, and NW. The sizes of the openings were shaped according to the orientation of the facades they belong to. Emphasis is also placed on the thermal insulation of opaque and transparent elements of the building.
The aim was to create two comfortable houses on a small urban plot, which have open spaces, views out in every direction, natural light in each one of them. Note that the main volume of the building is being detached from the adjacent plot in SW.
