The site is located in an intensely vegetated region, where the urban layout follows the all-around-free system of building. Its view to the pinetree hill (at the south-west) and to the airport (at the east) is characteristic. The adjacent plots (along the back boundary of the site at the north-east) are already built, therefore a response to the built volume to the north-eastern side is almost imperative.
Taking into consideration the orientation of the site and the view, as well as the semiotics of a familiy residence, the architects designed a building which through a series of wall-panels/screens enfolds the different spaces of the residence, defining the interior. At the same time, the negative space created in between the panels allow the exterior space and the view to penetrate the exterior shell.
In addition, the wall-panels/screens create a sculptural effect. They stand up like a wall engaged in a kind of dialogue with the adjacent buildngs.
The plan of the residence is organised in a L-shape. It embraces a south-western courtyard that benefits from views to the pinewoods. The entry is made from the southern end of the plot. The movement towards the entry of the residence runs externally, in parallel with one leg of the L-shape, so that it leads at the core of the building (the core of the L), where the stairwell is situated and from where all internal movements -organising the plan- are unfolding. Precisely at this point, one finds the livingroom, diningroom and kitchen areas, arranged along both sides of the central courtyard which develops at the inner corner of the L. Similar arrangement have the bedrooms on the loft, which overlooks the dinning area.
The fact that the openings on the exterior shell of the residece, operate like apertures that allow the light and the view to reach the interior, give out the sense of an interior space that breathes and converses with nature, and with the surrounding landscape, while at the same time protects the family, providing shelter.
