From the Architects:
Summer season in the Greek islands is all about currently being outside. The aim of the Plane Property is to merge internal and external area, maximising the rewards of both and minimising the effect on the surrounding landscape.
To stay away from block volumes that split and dominate area, horizontal planes are inserted into the slope, right away providing ranges for sunbathing, sleeping and consuming, as well as huge, open spot of shade. They amazing and shade the space beneath while permitting the movement of sunlight and preserving the stunning 270 degree view in excess of the coastline. Room between the planes is defined by various versatile panels and glazed screens. Designated cooking, eating and rest zones are offset from each other to provide cosiness with no sacrificing openness.
The pool is strategically placed to enjoy the see but also to produce a cooling breeze more than the terrace and into the residence as the north wind flows uphill and above its surface. Photovoltaic panels energy the pool mechanics and grey-water is recycled and utilized for irrigation, toilet flushing and fire extinguishing. The landscape is respected and continues in excess of the green roof plane, creeps up along the web site boundaries and penetrates vertically by way of the roof as present trees stand in the room, undisturbed.
The effective identity of the concrete planes generates a sturdy narrative on approaching the residence from the coastal road that winds under. From a distance the planes are distinctively separated but as you draw nearer and technique the house from the side, the viewpoint alters closing the gap between them. On arrival and on coming into the room they part when far more, opening to reveal the breathtaking view and let the fresh air flow by means of.
