* Residential Architecture: Rodia Stone House by Nikos Smyrlis Architect

Residential Architecture: Rodia Stone House by Nikos Smyrlis Architect: “..The house grows linearly in the north-south axis. It is a stone formation deposited by the torrent streams. Is a regular, solid resting on land that was converted from a stone volume after subtractions, sections and surface removals. The owner’s love for climbing and exploring affected the management of the volume as a monolithic element, using stone on all external surfaces and the patency / approach of the roof..The eastern and southern side of the volume is punctured, leaving the winter light to penetrate. The openings of the south are sun protected with cantilevered canopies, depending on the openings’ height. The continuous wall to the West is interrupted by a patio, illuminating the public spaces of the house. The outdoor dining area at the southwest courtyard, covered with a roof-strut, is wind protected, accepting also the warm sun of winter. The north arcade, that consists the building ending to the seaside, is the place for summer rest..”  Abundant glazing, natural light and views, wood-dominated domestic interior..
