KHFISIA, 2005, Athens, Greece

House for a young couple and their 3 children.

The house inhabits the middle of the long rectangular plot so that front and rear gardens are of equal importance.  Both horizontally and vertically, the exterior spaces equally carve up landscape and house as the green spaces create opportunities for rest and play and rise to inhabit the upper levels.

The flat landscape is manipulated to create a variety of topographies, from a playful Olive Mound, to the Sunken Garden, and up into the master bedroom Sky Garden on the First floor.
