Summer Home located in Halkidiki, Greece
By Magaly • Jul 14, 2017
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.
As the sun moves during the day the interior spaces are filled with ever-changing shadows.
