House in Nikaia by Christina Zerva Architects

Greek architect Christina Zerva has sent us photos of a house in Nikaia, Greece she has designed.

Full description after the photos….

The house consists of two cubic forms, a living and a sleeping area, connected by a glass bridge. Steel constructions form the skeleton of the object wrapped by prefabricated organic blocks that act as perfect insulation during warm summers and cold winters typical for this region. Interactions of geometrical shapes, huge volumes and transparent surfaces that offer a great view in Olympus mountain.

In the main object are the living room into which one steps directly from the front entrance, the dining room and the kitchen area. In the upper level is the master bedroom, the laundry room and bathrooms. The secondary cube-shaped pavilion houses the children’s bedrooms. One level for each. Through the glass corridor they have access to the main bedroom and bathrooms.

Photovoltaic solar panels hidden in the roof top provide sustainable electricity for any use. Recycled and second hand materials have been used for the building. The interior and the exterior is entirely illuminated with LED modules, with low energy consumption.

The floor-to-ceiling height in the main object is 7 meters, with the supporting structure that consists of a steel skeleton reinforced by diagonal elements staying visible.

With no conventional internal support walls there is opportunity for more shapely, free form space dividers, reminding of an industrial space that was never designed with rooms in mind.
