VILLA RITZ COMPLEX OF RESIDENCES

A COUNTRY COTTAGE
22/05/2017
In the border of two municipalities, Pylea and Panorama, and in an area of 45,000 square meters, there is a model high standard complex of residences which took seven years to build. The project was constructed in the context of a special building decree issued.

The location of the building plot offered a panoramic view of the city while the surrounding area gave the refreshing sense of the countryside. The complex comprises three seven-story buildings and three groups of two-story detached houses, a total of 165 dwellings. The design opted for multi-storey buildings based on the context of the decree. A typical characteristic of the period and the way of living was the typology applied, that is the construction of mostly large apartments (above 180 square meters) with luxurious communal areas and stairways. A four and a six-meter grid were employed, respectively.

The morphology of the complex was based on the aesthetic quality and strength of visible concrete and its capacity to be molded through formwork as well as on the large openings that allow an uninterrupted view. A typical feature of the architectural design are the skewed surfaces externally, which render the project construction interesting and timeless.

Particular emphasis was placed on the arrangement of shared spaces by building multiple accesses, recreation areas, a playground, a basketball court and a tennis court and green spaces throughout the complex, all providing a user-friendly environment.
