Family House, Porto Rafti, Athens

Family House, Porto Rafti, Athens

The Project

New, modern villa, right on the seafront, in the bay of Porto Rafti, in Attica,  a work of architect Nikos Ktenas. It consists of a basement, ground floor, mezzanine floor (loft) and first floor. It is a mixed use building, as there is a store on the ground floor and a residence on the first floor. It is a “fare-faced” reinforced concrete structure, without internal columns and with sufficient reinforced concrete shear walls. 


The structure is fully earthquake resistant, although it is not uniform either in plan or side view. From the architectural point of view, the design offers an unobstructed view of the sea on the level of the residence. The first floor has a very large opening towards the sea, with the minimum structural vertical elements on this side. This was achieved within the “statics” and “earthquake-resistant” design by the application of steel-profile columns with the smallest possible cross-section and by supporting the residence’s roof laterally at its left and right end. 


The mezzanine floor slab is “suspended” from the first floor roof slab with a steel-profile construction, which is embedded into the reinforced concrete load-bearing structure.
