Town House with Wonderful Interiors
By Magaly • Mar 27, 2018
This wonderful stone-walled town house with high wooden ceilings is located in the area of Drafi, Attica, in the northern suburbs of Athens, Greece. The mountainous area is full of pine trees, as well as wonderful views over the green hills that surround it.
The terrain of almost 20 meters had a slope that was a challenge for the architects, who adapted to the landscape and designed a modern house with a butterfly roof. This inevitably led to a 2-level design adapting to the inclination and fluctuations of the topology. Two different blocks, facing north and west, sit on different levels and join in the middle with a wedge-shaped volume that forms the entrance and vertical circulation that leads to the main spaces of the house.
The interior, with 9-meter-high ceilings, pleasantly surprises visitors, and the wonderful views through the glass walls will leave them speechless.
The four basic walls of the house are covered with stone, to look as if they were coming through the ground, connected to the exposed wooden ceiling only through a series of triangular aluminum windows. The butterfly roof, which reverses the conventional tilted-roof icon, allows natural light to enter through those tall windows at the back of the building.
