Text description provided by the architects. B house is a private residence designed for a four member family, located in a rural area at the east side of Thessaloniki, Greece, in northern Greece. The house is built in a privileged spot, overlooking the gulf of Thermaikos, the city of Thessaloniki and Olympous mountain.

On the ground floor we designed all these spaces where the family spend most of their time together, as well as with friends. The living room, the kitchen and a guest room. From this level one can easily  approach tha garden with the barbeque and the pool.

The private spaces of the house, such as the master bedroom and the two children bedrooms are on the fisrt floor. On the basement there are some auxiliary spaces, storages, laundry and a gym.

Our intention was to design a house that exploits all views without having traditional references in its form. There are three blocks that compose the building , like a “lego game”. As for the colors, the owners wanted only the use of white and grey, so  the rest would be given from the materials, like exposed concrete, wood, aluminium and glass.

Attention was given also to the energy concept. The house is built on the north south axis and operates the north wind for cooling during the summer. Also, the double-insulated walls and the arrangement of the openings control of internal comfort conditions. The choice of  geothermal heating helps towards this direction. A series of tubes exploits the rainwater for watering the garden, thus reducing running costs even more.

All disputes for this house came to a solution and the result is a customized house for the specific family, but also a house which makes proud the architect who designed it.
