This small construction, designed for a client that wished to have a tiny summer home, is located in Halkidiki, Greece. It is a low-maintenance home and it is surrounded by a vast field of olive trees. It has wonderful views over the sea and beyond, towards the famous monasteries of Mount Athos.
The project is highly experimental and employs cutting-edge digital CAD/CAM technology in an innovative way. All building components were pre-fabricated; nevertheless, the design itself carefully considered the sun’s position to provide shading and to complement the views.
The building measures 3 meters by 7 meters, and its interior is subdivided into small rooms connected by a corridor.
In its interior, two small beds form the resting area. On the other side of the corridor, a small piece of shelved furniture functions as a kitchen and stove, where two chairs and a small table come together to function as a dining room, also providing us with the opportunity to enjoy the terrace.
The exterior part of the cabin is formed by a metallic surface, with a perforated textile-like pattern inspired by the shade of the olive trees, which envelops the home and also adapts to it to give the interior spaces the utmost flexibility.
