VASILIAOU APARTMENTS

The project is about a five store apartment building with pilotis, which is adjacent to an old 2 store building to the north and  to an 7  store apartment building to the south.
The whole composition is articulated by rectangular volumes grow incrementally, taking in account the ratios of the neighbor buildings, to create a smooth transition.
Each floor consists of an autonomous residence outside of the D & E which develops a two-stores house.
The houses have large openings for better illumination and natural ventilation, and to create a better contact with the outdoors spaces.
The spanned balconies -open spaces act as viable outdoors, extension home.
