PENTELI AREA HOUSE
PENTELI area HOUSE
In the Penteli area, at Attica’s northeast, this house was built for son, brother Mark, his wife Maria and their small son. Its finishing material is uniform: a colored cement slip that covers concrete floors, external steps, the kitchen including counters and cupboard frames, as well as total bathroom surfaces.
The house volume is divided in three parts. The first one under a single sloped roof, parallel to the land, contains a two story high dining room adjacent to the kitchen, the upper bedroom and the half basement auxiliary spaces. The second flat roof part covers ground floor living with the above main bedroom and bath. Their junction is the main entrance block plastered dark crimson. Windows are all sliding aluminum frames.
The initial sloped roof part was designed by the user’s father Michael. Seven years later the two part house additions were designed by the elder brother Philip who associated to finish the total.
A dark green cement slip overflow pool blends into the back rocks. It is everyone’s joy especially champion swimmer Maria.
