Villa Violeta

dimiourgiki as Architects

What was the brief?
Architectural study and interior design of a subterranean house in the municipality of Kissamos. It was a plot of 7 acres, quite elongated and tilted from east to west, with amazing sea views. The surrounding area includes a 40 m2 swimming pool, an outdoor seating area and a specially designed barbeque area. The subterranean house, is 126sq.m. and has been located at the westernmost and the lowest point of the plot. This ensures the uninterrupted view of the house towards the sea, as well as its bioclimatic character.

What were the key challenges?
On the plot, there was already a two-storey stone house. The aim of our new architectural study was to add to the plot two new independent houses of higher energy category. A subterranean and a two-storey stone.
