Peloponnese Rural House

Best Implemented Project of Private Residence

About the project
A plot situated in a remote village of Kalamia, with an unobstructed view to the Gulf of Corinth, is a setting for a family retreat. The morphology of the place, a slope with a 6m height difference, led to the decision of creating a house with humble appearance from the street side, while developing in a prominent two-level construction from the garden. Natural reclaimed materials applied on the elevations and in interior are inspired by industrial feel of the rural Peloponnese traditional stone stables. Built according to sustainable standards with restricted means, the custom-made 140m2 dwelling has been playing major role in the 2020 pandemic situation, providing its inhabitants safety and comfort.
