4-appartment building complex in the town of Nafplio, Greece
in collaboration with C.Korovesi
The design solution proposes the creation of two building blocks facing the street. The two blocks are joined by a third smaller binder volume, which contains the central staircase and the entrances for the two levels on its front, and the wet areas of the appartments that are in vertical connection on its back. The two volumes are sliding, to optimise lighting and ventilation. The solution of two -level building blocks with two appartments per level was the best option to meet the needs of owners and the criteria for independence and privacy of homes but also satisfy the request of the client for optimum exploitation of the building ratio. All the four appartments have terraces facing the street, as for the greek climate private roofed balconies are important spaces of everyday life. Bearing elements of the construction are from reinforced concrete.
