The project involves two detached houses with a total area of approximately 260m² each, in Kallithea, a seaside village in Kassandra peninsula, Halkidiki, Greece. The two houses have been designed in a plot, located next to the beach, which is one of the most beautiful beaches in Halkidiki. They are designed to accommodate large families and provide high-quality hosting, through their architecture.
Between them, there is a separator stone wall to ensure privacy. The roof was designed in such a way, to offer bigger internal height, in certain rooms of the second floor. Each house has two open but sheltered parking spaces, as well as swimming pool, a BBQ and a storage room on their main courtyard.
The entrance to each house is on the ground floor, which is actually situated higher than the road, due to the tilted plot. On this level, there is the kitchen, the dining, the fireplace and the sitting area.
Using either the interior or the exterior stair, architects reached the basement level, which is actually an independent apartment itself. It consists of a large common area with the living room and the kitchen which is open to a spacious veranda with an exterior sitting and dining area. In this level, there are also two bedrooms, a bathroom and an additional small storage room.
Both houses are surrounded by private yards with swimming pools, BBQ, changing rooms, showers and a garden warehouse. A concrete pergola connects the yard to the living room. It is a transition element that is used to blend the inside and outside space.
Internally, white marble was used on the flooring of the common areas, and natural oak flooring, for the bedrooms. Large ceramic tiles, shower cubicles and moisture resistant drywall false ceilings have been selected for the bathrooms.
