Two Summer Houses
Art is in the air
The new study concerns the reuse of an abandoned tourist building from the 1980s and its extension to accommodate two summer residences with a pool, garden and roof garden in the touristic settlement of Platanias in Chania, Crete. The load-bearing structure of the existing building is maintained, and the extensions on both sides rationalize the volume of the building in its purest form. The ground floor spaces of each residence remain open and flexible, while the private spaces are located on the upper floor. The two staircases lead to the external space of the communal roof.
