Remodeling of a traditional house

40.00 m2

Project: Remodeling of a traditional house
Location: Chora,  Kimolos
Year: 2015

The area of this  one-room old house is 27.36 sqm. including the traditional structure of the oven.
The owner’s need to acquire a  habitable residence led to the present study.
The aim of the study is to maintain the imprint of the old building in the traditional urban web. For this reason, the structure of the oven is maintained as a special morphological element and an additional floor is constructed in retreat, thus to ensure a smooth visual transition from the lowest volume to the highest. The ground floor is formed into living room, dining room and kitchen. the bedroom is on the first floor which has access to a small terrace.
