Due the separation into two units, several remote apartments with more privacy were created. Each building consists of four apartments situated on three floors; on the first floor there are two apartments of 40m² and 90m², whereas on the second and third floor there are two floor-through apartments of 115 m².

Their floor plans were designed with focus on the functionality of the apartments and every apartment owner’s needs. Three bedrooms, a bathroom, a w.c., a storage space (accessible only from the kitchen) and a unified living room area space are the basic functions of the larger apartments, while the smaller ones differ with one less bedroom and a combined kitchen and living room area.

The building is located in Farsala town, on a free perimeter triangular 650 m² plot. It includes eight apartments on three floors, parking lots and storage units on the ground floor “pilotis” and the basement respectively.

The triangular shape and the position of the plot as well as the road network that surrounds it resulted in the maximum possible exploitation of the surface. Thus, two buildings A and B where designed, with the stairway and elevator area as the central nucleus.

The openings on the building’s façades, in combination with the big balconies, which form extensions of the apartments, enable the residents to come into contact with the outside environment and to enjoy the skyline.

The free configuration of the building enhances a correct natural lighting and ventilation conditions throughout the day. The white balconies with the vertical connection, as well as the four vertical red stripes – are giving a sense of vitality to the building and highlighting its main volume in the best possible way it’ s main form.
