Peloponnese Olive Tree Stone House, Kalamias Ahaias

A plot overlooking the Gulf of Corinth, in a village of Kalamia, is a setting for a dwelling. The morphology of the place led to the decision of creating the house with humble, stable-like appearance from the street side, while developing in a two-level prominent construction from the garden.Entrance level relates through the large openings to the outdoor observation platform for stargazing and experiencing distant view of the sea. Additional windows created on the roof and both sides of the house improve natural light and ventilation, while communication with the garden is by cantilevered staircase. At the lower level, two atmospheric courtyards enable access to the garden.Natural materials, like reclaimed local stone and others are inspired by industrial feel of the traditional stone stables of the rural Peloponnese, contributing together with natural light to the richness of textures.It is important to emphasize that the entire 140m2 of custom-made space is built with the restricted means according to contemporary sustainable standards and has been playing major role in the 2020 pandemic situation, providing its inhabitants safety and comfort.
