H14 is a block of five apartments located in Glyfada (Artemisiou 4 Street, Athens) and consists of lofts, a planted roof and basements. The site is only a few meters distant from the sea shore as well as the tram stop which connects Glyfada to central Athens. The architectural concept is taking into count the present as well as the future design of the area. Towards this direction, a modern architecture will be created targeting the under development area of Helliniko. This site is situated 150m away from the old airport of Helliniko which will be converted into a metropolitan park, designed from worldwide famous architectural firms. Thus our design follows the same language. Our proposal is regarding a seemingly lightweight construction with curved thin slabs where the curves are contradicting a nevertheless minimal approach creating a more contemporary and dynamic form which works as a sculpture.
The five floors consist of nine apartments in total: The ground floor, the mezzanine floor together with a part of the basement where the first apartment is extended to. There are two apartments on each of the first three floors of the building, while on the fourth and fifth floor there are two (2 storey) loft apartments. The sizes of the apartments are between 135-365 m2. The entrance on the first three floors is achieved through the main stairwell where one can enter in the united living space area that is connected with an open kitchen. The internal corridor leads to a guests WC, a master bedroom and two smaller bedrooms with en-suite bathroom.
