Wonderful House in Athens, Greece, Surrounded by Lush Gardens
By Magaly • Mar 14, 2018
This modern house, with lush and green outdoor spaces, has been designed by the firm RS Sparch by the hand of its architect Rena Sakellaridou in the city of Athens, Greece.
The area, which has 240 square meters, is hidden behind a garden with a dense collection of trees. It is formed by a concrete base, a white metal structure, and a characteristic tunnel-esque structure, which houses the rooms. The opening on both sides of the interior allows views of the garden to flood the interior.
The program is simple: living room and kitchen on the ground floor and two bedroom-suites on the top floor. There is also a gym, a guest room, and a service room that are located in the basement.
This is a house in a secret garden, a house in its own world open to nature, although surrounded by the dense urban fabric of Athens. Hidden behind the trees, the house integrates into the garden; its its colors, its shadows, it all changes over time.
The two main levels are connected visually through a glass floor, while a skylight at the top brings natural light.
