An ultramodern, minimal, luxurious villa, in Athens, in one of the last wooded areas near the urban environment.
It is located on a hillside of Penteli, in the Municipality of Dionysos, near the marble quarry, where all the marble material for the construction of the Parthenon was taken.
Architects Kokkinou and Kourkoulas made the design.
When constructed, the residence will be a reference point for minimal, geometric architecture, in the natural environment.
The architectural design features a layout of prismatic structural elements made of fare faced reinforced concrete, which often rest on each other on alternate orientations, always at right angles to each other, creating bridges, cantilevers, colonnades, atriums and aquatic spaces, such as the swimming pool, matching perfectly to the structure.
The architecture allows its tenants to enjoy living both indoors and outdoors.
In statics solving, an attempt is made to avoid any alteration of the architectural geometry, due to statics requirements.
The statics structural design follows the architecture.
This is achieved by applying high-strength modern materials and building methods, such as steel profiles and ultra-high strength concrete, where needed.
It is often necessary to apply mixed cross sections to columns and beams, incorporating steel profiles into reinforced concrete sections of these elements.
Thus, any vulnerabilities of the construction are fully addressed and the desired architectural effect is fully achieved.
The project is under construction.
