Private Residence in Ekali by ISV Architects:
“The property is situated in Ekali, 1 of the most privileged suburbs of Athens. The short needed for the house to serve 2 purposes: the living spaces of the owners, and the exhibition space for their vast art collection.
Offered the intense slope of the internet site, the functions have been divided into multiple levels. At the lower level, is the principal access point from the street as well as an indoor pool which brings the entrance in a dialogue with the element of water. The level above consists of the primary living spaces, dining room and kitchen, which all work at the very same time as exhibition regions for ar2rk. These spaces open up towards the primary courtyards which are situated at a greater level due to the fact of the terrain’s angle, away from the street’s noise. At the prime floor, lies the master bedroom.
The elevations of the developing face either into the inner side of the internet site, or towards the street side. The dominating facade, nonetheless, is the a single facing the entrance side. The facade towards the upper street, with its huge walls, renders privacy to the residents.
A retaining wall and a free of charge standing wall, both produced of concrete, frame the enormous white cantilever volume of the principal living room and create a powerful feeling of harmony to the visitor.
The court sides dissolve into extended glazed surfaces, beams and pergolas, which generate an immediate partnership between the inside and the outside. The main composition as a person moves towards the courtyard is characterized by transparency, intermediate semi-enclosed spaces and the escalation of volumes.
The water element surrounds the building and completes the serene feeling of the garden.
A pavilion functions as a back drop to the garden. It was specially created for the art pieces of the owners and strikes the visitor by its horizontality during the day and its high transparency throughout the night.
Exposed concrete and white finishes bring to life the structural components of the residence.
At the interior of the constructing, white or off-white colors rule the space, generating the necessarily neutral background for the ar2rk.”
