Latypi Residence / A31 Structure
Textual content description offered by the architects. In a plot with a major slope and south orientation, positioned in Choulakia, Mykonos, and overlooking Delos and Rineia islands, we determined to create a brand new, partly subterranean residence on two flooring.
The above-ground a part of the residence quantities to 120m2, whereas the subterranean half is roughly 130m2. From the very starting, the constructing was perceived as a component of a larger mission which included all 4000 m2 of the plot. The goal was to weave each the hardscape and tender scape of the constructing into the pure Mykonian panorama. Because of this, the entity that was created is just not seen from the road.
The Latypi mission converses with the archetypical architectural legacy in addition to the Cycladic terrain, situating itself as a up to date intervention inside the panorama. The idea has been impressed by the native sculptural custom, which has produced timeless artworks all through the centuries.
The intention to have the outside house emerges as the focus of the constructing advanced (an age-old Greek follow) is immediately legible. At degree +0.00 (64m above sea degree) all of the areas are developed round an atrium. Within the heart, an unyielding olive tree with roots deep within the Mediterranean panorama capabilities as a component of reminiscence.
This part of the constructing contains the principle dwelling areas: lounge, kitchen, and eating room, in addition to two sleeping areas, one with direct entry to the courtyard and swimming pool, and a second one, the pure lighting of which is achieved via a nicely of sunshine.
On the identical degree, an out of doors amphitheater of roughly 60 seats is dealing with the sacred island of Delos. At degree +4.00 (68m above sea degree) the second part of the residence is developed, nearly solely underground, and consists of two bedrooms and ensuite bogs. This part is linked to the principle constructing by way of a 2.00m vast, open-air promenade.
It’s sheltered by a planted roof and has a southern orientation overlooking the Aegean Sea. The outside parking areas are additionally coated with a planted roof in order that the presence of automobiles is just not detectable from above.
The panorama design is predicated on the present pure terrain, borrowing from its parts, and reinterpreting the range, textures, and colours of native crops to create a brand new palette. The objective is the least potential alteration of the pure panorama together with the reassimilation of the native vegetation within the intervention areas. The proposed xeromorphic plantings are proof against related soil and weather conditions and have total low irrigation and upkeep necessities.
