An article of “Le grand bleu” a villa that Veronis-Jakobsen is going to construct is published on a Greek magazine. Hope you find it interesting…
«Le grand bleu». This name was chosen by the architects of a luxurious country house in Naxos to give the feeling that someone can admire from abroad. “Extreme Blue” is built on a hillside above Plaka beach with a “flight” to the Aegean Sea, the mountain and the Chora, to be delivered soon to its French owners. The “K” presents this unique work in the Cyclades, which designed by a team of three new graduates from the School of Architecture of NTUA.
“The residence is inspired by traditional Cycladic settlements and develops in close connection with the ground, following the natural topography, the water way and the paths. The composition does not follow a strict geometric pattern, but instead follows the natural relief and its peculiarities, “explains Aristides Messiaris, a member of the architectural team.
The entrance to the underground residence allows direct visual contact with the living room. In the background, the dining room is located at a higher level to ensure unobstructed view of the horizon. Next to it, built in a recess, is the fireplace. Moving to the right, the visitor perceives the geometry of the central stairway, the volume of which slowly fades upward, revealing the kitchen and the light-filled corridor leading to the private areas of the house. From the kitchen, there is direct communication with the front yard, so as to get out, the shaped semi-outdoor recess is offered for a breakfast meal overlooking the sea and Naxos Town.
The walkway, which runs through the entire length of the building, is illuminated by the stone atrium giving the feeling of a natural Mediterranean ravine. The view in front of the semi-open area of the living room is complemented by the olive tree, a symbol of the Greek Mediterranean climate.
The layout of the bedrooms has been done in such a way as to “offer” a magnificent view of the horizon and the courtyard. “We considered it important that each room be spacious enough to have wardrobes and a personal hygienic space, which at the same time is adequately illuminated. This is accomplished through patio lights that bring the sun’s rays inside, “says Hera Desipri, a member of the architectural team, in” K “.
On the outside, the pool develops linearly, occupying a large part of the house’s face. Its elongated shape made it possible to create a smooth transition of its depth, as would be the case on a natural coast. Outside the pool you can enjoy the sun and the view in every part of the courtyard or sit in the specially planted space, ideal after sunset as it offers panoramic views.
“The home combines modern architectural manipulation with the hand-crafted sense and style of the traditional,” explains Philippos Tsoulouianis-Nicolaou, who is the third member of the architectural team. “Compatible building materials with reinforced concrete and brick, coated with white plaster as well as the stone structure, create a dynamic contrast between the building and the natural environment. Also, the choice of simple materials, compatible with the Cycladic architecture, helps to integrate this dynamic “line” into the landscape of Naxos “.
Most of the building has a planted roof and is lost to the natural ground (subsurface). An important advantage is its bioclimatic properties throughout the year. In the summer months the soil transports the soil temperature while keeping the building cool, while in winter, the soil acts as insulation protecting the interior from the low temperatures.
“The goal is to create a villa made for man and our vision is the realization of an architectural work that will not be a simple residence but a landmark of the area”, explains the architects.
The relationship between the young architects and the island had begun about a year ago when, as students of the NTUA, the winners of the “The House Project” competition, organized by the construction company of Naxos, Veronis – Jakobsen, in collaboration with The non-profit organization “Best Athens” of the School of Architecture of NTUA. The project concerned the study of the architectural composition of a modern underground housing complex.
The team of Aristides, Hera and Philippe stood out with her work and this distinction was appreciated. When the same company undertook this year to build this particular building in Plaka, it was addressed to the graduates of the School of Architecture of the NTUA. “The three students had won the best impression,” Giorgos Veronis, head of the Veronis-Jakobsen office, says in the “K”.
“So when the French buyers came in contact with me asking for something special, I was sure that this group could cope with their demands with innovative and pioneering ideas, creating a country house with respect to the island’s environment and Cycladic architecture” , He explains.
The talented architects have also undertaken other projects in Athens and state that they are available to new challenges and innovations. “Our primary objective is the integration of the work we have undertaken in Naxos,” says Hera Desipri and concludes: “We would like to chase the opportunities in Greece, as the Greek landscape with its particular beauty and history is a challenge for every new Architect »
