Twin houses

in Kalamos, Lefkada

Architectural design | Construction

2016

This project was about the design and construction of two adjacent but autonomous holiday homes on the islet of Kalamos, southeast of Lefkada, in a shared, pre-existing shell of reinforced concrete. This pre-existing structural system made the symmetrical deployment of the two houses imperative, with a mirrored interior arrangement. In the lower level, the public spaces were placed due to their direct contact with the water element, while the upper levels contain the bedrooms with their auxiliary spaces.

 

For the exterior facades a white coating was chosen with blue-colored aluminum frames for the openings. The stone cladding on the ground floor was chosen to protect the underlying walls from moisture, due to their proximity to the sea, which is just a few meters away.
