* Residential Architecture: Othonos House by Nikos Smyrlis Architect

Posted by the editors on Friday, 25 May 2012

Residential Architecture: Othonos House by Nikos Smyrlis Architect: “..The displacement of the house was defined by an effort to conserve the big old trees..simple in the geometry of its volume, so that it completed by the elements of the environment – the old villas and gardens..From the entrance, the house shows up like a ground floor archway in symmetry with the listed building. As one moves towards the house he realizes its actual size while the three levels appear together with the underground floor. The triangular columns gradually get higher, with fixed proportions..”  Filtered light, privacy, wood lamella screens and an odd, almost Memphis-esque, post-moderist facade…
