It is a private four story residential building. The uppermost storey which is located inside the roof contains the master suite. The middle levels include living rooms and secondary bedrooms, while at the lowest level there are secondary rooms and a parking area.
The spectacular view to the sea and the mountain led us to design an extrovert residential. Its basic characteristic is its big windows parametrically at the facades that are protected by an innovative system of movable aluminum curtains that enhance the bioclimatic character of the house. These curtains are programmed through an electrical system in order to allow the ideal natural daylight and ventilation during the day, depending the hour of the day and the season of the year. The design of the building came as a result of the specifications of the plot and is inspired by the origami, the traditional japan paper craft. The residence is designed in accordance to the natural surroundings and especially the rocky terrain which in some occasions is flattened and used as a terrace and others becomes part of the building as a structural element.
Pavlos Chatziangelidis founded 314 architecture studio in 2004. He studied civil engineering in National Technical University of Athens 1996-2002 and architecture engineering in The University of Thessaly 2006-2012. In 2004 he acquired a Master of Arts degree in design. The name 314 of the studio, is inspired from the mathematic symbol π = 3,14 that is used to count the area of the circle. This reference is related to the philosophical dimension of the concept of the circle. The basic characteristic of his design beside the ecological, social and programmatic dimensions of the project, is the creation of a shell that urges the user to experience an abstraction.
