Contemporary design at project H3, Athens, Greece

Contemporary-property-interior-design-ideas-Greece-07

Athens-based architectural practice 314 Architecture Studio have completed the H3 project. Completed in 2012, the contemporary home can be found in Athens, Greece.

The contemporary Greek house was designed to give a sense of balance of the water element and the owners love for yachts, which after all was the inspiration for this project.

The contact of the house and the artificial ponds that surround it, create a cooling sensation. The water for the lakes and the pool comes from a well, while the water demand for irrigation comes from a tank in which rainwater is collected through a drainage system that distills and collects water. The bioclimatic housing design allows the sun to warm up cold places in the winter and in the summer months to cool down other places while ventilation blows the hot air out. The use of geothermal energy provides energy saving for the cooling and heating systems through the means of the coil fan. The rooms are covered with spiral that in conjunction with the solar panels on the rear side of the plot, heat the pool water. Photovoltaic panels have been fitted at the rear side of the plot for the production of electric power.
