Set on the Athenian riviera at Vouliagmeni, Iasonos House is a twin-residence complex that mirrors the compelling natural beauty of its surroundings. Designed as a direct spatial response to the landscape, the architecture seeks to enhance, rather than compromise, the local topography, using subtle and understated forms of modernism to create minimal interference with the site. The building features a material palette specially chosen to respect and reflect the colours and beauty of the coastline, the unique red-browns of the rocks and earth, and the cobalt blues of the Ionian Sea and the voluminous skies above. The geometric composition of the facade is composed to work in harmony with the topography of the hillside and coastline below, emphasising lightness and transparency, and using glass, stone, wood and white concrete finishes to create a balanced yet abstract three-dimensional play of geometry and volume. Presenting an organic form of modernism that softens the dichotomy of architecture and nature, the design features vertical and horizontal wood elements that bisect the exterior and external voids of the lower floors, softening the building’s profile.
Like all our projects, Iasonos House was designed and built to the very best A+ environmental standards and works as a fully integrated and climate-controlled environment using the most modern and energy-efficient SMART technologies. The exterior insulation specification and triple glazed windows ensure low emissions, under-floor heating, and heat pumps maintained using solar panels installed on the roof, moving towards compete energy self-sufficiency. All specified construction materials and interior details meet the latest sustainability criteria under current legislation.
