private residence in Alimos

Architectural design: Dimitrios Tsigos

tdc design team: John Kyrlis, Christina Malama

Current state: preliminary design


Following the clients request for a house in two levels, but one that still features one single unified space, the concept of the ”open section” was developed. The second level of the house was thus realized as a series of cantilevering elements that only partially cover the second floors footprint, to the creation of a unified double height volume. the feeling of the unified space found in the concept of open plan is carried in vertical.
Moreover, a huge 3d glazed part of the main volumehas been developed to be mechanically movable. The extend of openness offered to the interior by this move is such, that attributes of exterior space are offered to the previously interior parts of the house.
