Apartment building in Peristeri, Athens

The basic design aim was the integration of the building’s scale in order to fit with the small houses surrounding it and also to articulate each apartment’s private open space. A big concern was given to the creation of unique visual and acoustic areas for each flat. All apartments have access to open roofs (on top of other appartments) which, without being isolated from their surroundings, retain visual and acoustic privacy and autonomy. Stepped surfaces with different directivity and volumes, unified in shapes at a scale larger than just one floor, create a unified synthesis free from the disruption of small-element divisions.

The design follows the grid of the smaller surrounding streets and is diagonal to the main street, Gounari street. In this way, the relatively large volume of the building is integrated into the scale of surrounding houses. At the same time, the diagonal view of the building, creates a surprise to those coming from the main street, thus creating a landmark.
