The project is sited in a seaside suburban area in East Attica. The concept was to create an uninterrupted route behaving as a connection of the interior and the exterior, manipulated and worked in a dynamic but conscious and recognizable way that moves far from mechanistic logic and closer to stochastic processes. The route starts with the stepped entrance and folds around the central vertical axis of the building as it ascents to the top, terminating at the plateau, the top of the periscopic structure, which encloses the living space. Casa Malaparte designed by Adalberto Libera the great Italian Modernist with its reverse pyramidal stairs leading to the roof patio was an inspiration during the design process. The villa behaves like a moving organism which enabled by light, alters from hour to hour and from season to season. The dark soft and humid turns to luminous, dry, crystalline cold in an unbroken loop.
