The building, constructed in Athens in the middle of the urban densification called Marousi, is overlooking a without buildings region.
The original design was for a single house of 110 m2 on the first floor and a shop on the ground floor (1990). This affectation had been chosen in function of the properties of the street, which is described as “urban center of the neighborhood”.
Later, two more floors were added and the terrace, characterized through its pergolas, became a space for collective use (1994).
The building is planned by the basic of modern architecture of rationalism.
Mainly plain materials were used, such as visible concrete in the interior as well as on the exterior of the building, steel columns (profiles with L or H shape), with Venetian blinds for the balkony, aluminum cladding and continuous glazing on the front and back façade.
The orientation of the building is North-South where the southern side is protected by a doubled roofing. The structure is accentuated with colors rich in connotations such as ochre, a deep red tonality, light blue and deep blue-black.
