A project for the construction of two homes on a small plot of land in a suburb of Athens was undertaken by Vassilis Baskozos and Daria Tsagaraki of MOB Architects in 2011.
The unusual design for these homes was influenced by the existing buildings in the area, a selection of designs and colours without any common factor, which led the architects to the conclusion that their design must create its own view rather than have the view imposed upon it.
Thus, a concrete wall was built along the boundaries of the site, with selective openings to control the visibility beyond it.. A three story structure was built with a double level living space, the generous glazing facing inwards towards an internal garden. A natural indoor, outdoor flow introduces a unique aesthetic for the occupants. The upper floors were set back from the road with a pergola and horizontal column which brings the building in line with the road and the neighboring buildings. Entrance to the homes is either via the ground floor or the underground parking area.
