Facade variation references

Apartment block in Polydroso, Athens, Greece.

This building was built after wining an award in an open architectural competition in 1977-1980.
The architects are Tassos and Dimitris Biris.

→ We like the variation in the facade: with the extracted volumes of the inside spaces. The basic rectangular volume of the building is a complex cubistic composition of partial full and vacant elements.

→ We like the open ground floor.

Apartment block in Metaxourgio, Athens, Greece.

This residential complex was built after wining an award in an international architectural competition in 2006 – 2009.
The architects are Georgia Daskalaki, Yannis Papadopoulos, Tassos Biris

→ We like the variation in the facade: with the extracted volumes of the inside spaces.

Apartment block in Asyrmatos, Athens, Greece.

The building was built to house low-income people by the Greek Social Housing Organization in 1967.
The architect was Eli Vasilikioti.

→ We like the variation in the facade: with the semi-outdoor corridor that runs the entire length of the facade and acts as a common balcony for the tenants. That refers to a sense of walking in a neighborhood’s street.

→ We like the relations between public and private spaces: The limits of these two are quite blurred. The road per case transforms into a courtyard and the courtyard into a road.
