Luxury Property in Greece by Nikos Koukourakis
Nikos Koukourakis designed this luxury residence for a client in Dionysos, 23 km northeast of Athens. The modern house uses straight lines and big openings enable the natural light to travel through every space of the house, reducing the amount of energy needed to illuminate the house. Furthermore the house was designed and built according to ‘’green architectural choices of materials used, as well as using a cutting-edge home automation system to enable every feature to be controlled by a single control panel. The continuous optical dialogue between the inside and the outside is achieved by the 3.50m (each panel) sliding windows that appear in the main elevation. The house was first designed in every detail in a computer 3-D model, which allowed to have a better understanding of the building’s interaction with the environment.
The building dominates with its clean-cut lines, while its volume is split, without being dissolved, from the rich perimetric openings giving to it an airy sense via to their exposure to natural light. The big glass surfaces leave a permanently open dialogue with the outside, without creating the least sense of isolation with the luxury interior of the house.
