8. Description:
The building is designed for a four member family. It contains -next by the living area- four bedrooms, two bathrooms and the atelier. The internal spaces are arranged in the living area in a high ground-floor above which is positioned the restaurateur atelier, the bedrooms and the service areas arranged on two levels. The plot is of 20 percent slope, therefore the external pathways are getting an accentuated role in the volumetric composition. The main elements of this composition are the garage and storage at the entrance, the stairs of the pathway, the garden pond and the residential building. This project is the third application of the "Free Form Buildings" construction system. The external covering is coloured shotcrete, applied on the multi layered shell of the "Free Form Buildings" cupola structure. The application of this construction system –next by the advantageous construction costs- is facilitating the energy consumption of the use. The cupola structure –in the internal cells- contains the insulation and its curved surface is reducing the external surface of the build volume. The building design is corresponding to the passive house requirements. The heating is supplied by air to air heat recovery and ground heat exchanger ventilation.
