BY THE POOL PROJECT
Location: Chalkidiki, GreeceStatus: Concept Design
Lead architect: Aspasia Taka
Design team: Maria Avramidou, Maria Solidaki, Thalia Kovani
The project is about the concept design of a hospitality complex of nine apartments. The complex comprises of two units. All apartments have unobstructed view towards the communal swimming pool and pool bar. The orientation and the scale of the building are a result of an overall sustainable design. The sunshades coupled with double-glazed windows control the amount of sunlight entering the building. The water element of the swimming pool increases the amount of vapors and adds to the natural cooling during evening hours. The combination of the swimming pool and the plot’s landscape create a sort of microclimate.
