Vacation House in Mavrendi - Location on map

Vacation House in Mavrendi

This vacation house is located in the area of Mavrendi in the Prefecture of Achaia (Northern Peloponnese), about 4km (2,5 miles) from the town of Aigeira.

The integration of the house in the surrounding, merely touched landscape was of very high importance for this project, thus the planners developed a building, which takes over a rural language, while at the same time being contemporary.

Two volumes, a higher and a lower one, are connected by the polygonal entrance area following the inclination of the slope.

The hipped roofs were covered with stone-shingles.
All wall elements are made of reinforced concrete, making the building resistant to the high seismic activity in the area.

The project was included in the book "Reflections on Greek Postwar Architecture"
by Panos Tsakopoulos (published 2014).
