SUMMER HOUSES IN PSILI AMMOS, KEA ISLAND
FULL STUDIES AND SUPERVISION OF CONSTRUCTION, 1998
CLIENT: “EFXANTIS LTD”
This project was for the design of nine blocks of houses on sites of 4-5.000 m2, on the bay of Psili Ammos, on the east coast of Kea Island.
Each block consists of two to three independent houses of 65, 75 or 85 m2 each, organised in various ways, so that they form discrete entities, placed in an environmentally friendly way.
The design aimed at:
the as far as possible milder intervention in this beautiful environment, by adapting each building to the specific characteristics of its site,
taking advantage of the steep slopes for securing the privacy of outdoor spaces and approaches, as well as for offering unhindered sea views to the Aegean sea expanding in front of the complex,
the use of rough materials and local building practices using stones, both in landscaping and in the buildings themselves, so as to ensure their long-term durability and functionality.
TPA carried out all studies and the supervision of the building works.
