Taxiarxon 52, Alimos

The H1005 apartment block occupies a plot of 120 m2 in the Athens area.

The architectural design revolves around the innovative use of a perforated shell, creating a space that is both captivating and forward-thinking. These design elements not only demonstrate a remarkable fusion of aesthetics and functionality but also establish a unique identity for the building.

Utilizing the shell as a protective covering gives the structure a distinctive character while providing shelter and shading. The incorporation of perforated material allows for the passage of light and air, fostering an open connection with the surrounding environment. This perforated feature adds visual interest by creating captivating interplays of light and shadow, enhancing the building’s overall appeal and complexity.

Alongside the perforated shell, landscaping and lighting are integral components of the architectural design. Lighting significantly influences the ambiance, adapting to the space’s needs throughout the day and night. Natural light filters through the perforated facade, complemented by strategically placed artificial lighting. Additionally, the presence of plants on the balconies introduces natural greenery, promoting a healthy and inviting atmosphere. The combination of these elements ensures that the space not only excels in aesthetics but also prioritizes comfort and user experience.
