Private House, 2012, Limassol
Situated on the edge of a hill site in Pareklisia, Limassol, the proposed house takes advantage of the endlessly shifting panoramic views towards the sea.
A propose concrete shelter (bedroom areas), hovering above ground level, supported by two solid steel “blocks”, becomes the shelter for the proposed glazed living area below, allowing for multiple views in every direction. By excavating, coverage maximization for the required programme is achieved with additional living spaces provided at basement level. Openings on the ground level above allow natural sunlight towards the basement level below.
Proposed gardens at both sites unify the living space at basement level, transforming it into one secret garden.
