Panorama Villa Residence by Potiropoulos and Partners

Home > Winners > #100500


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Panorama Villa

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residence

INSPIRATION:
The architectural concept pays homage to the historic regional architecture of Mani, Greece, particularly its stone tower houses. Simplicity, roughness, and the relationship with natural light are the core design principles, especially the way in which light encompasses and underlines the clean, cut geometry and rugged texture of the stony forms. The Villa is located in Navarino Residences, a collection of luxury villas for private ownership at the heart of Navarino Dunes resort at Costa Navarino, the prime sustainable destination in the Mediterranean.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The configuration is conceived as a series of individual stone fragments revolving around the atrium and main living spaces. The volumes of the residence open a dialogue with their natural surroundings, while the rhythm of their openings either ensures privacy or invites in panoramic views of the horizon, constructing an experience of successive and diverse narratives. The rigorous design follows the ongoing dialog between the building and the landscape through giving its interior different viewings and spatial qualities.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
On the north, the main access to the building is a varied path through the garden, paved with a succession of hard and permeable surfaces. The parking area is also found on the northern side of the site. There is an additional pedestrian access on the southern side through a staircase that connects the street-level to different patios with varying uses. The design unfolds itself in three levels (basement, ground floor, first floor), five distinct volumes and their additional connecting levels, all gravitating around the main atrium of the residence.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Costa Navarino, Navarino Dunes, Messinia, Peloponnese, Greece

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Stone is the prominent construction material, comprising the monolithic building envelope while it selectively enters its interior (e.g. the living room, dinning room, atrium, and others). Flooring is made of stone too, further reinforcing the continuity between interior and exterior spaces. The totality of stone is interrupted by openings that are organically distributed around the building, hinting at cherished impressions of the traditional architecture of the region. Corten is the second most important material of the project, used not only for the pergolas and perforated panels, but also the openings and window profiles.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Total area of residence is 592 m2. Building height is 7.50 metres.

TAGS:
Architecture, Residency, Costa Navarino, Greece, Pool, View, Sea

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
By employing a straightforward constructional expression, the architectural composition investigates the syntactic combination of the materials, as well as their texture, color and response to light.

CHALLENGE:
How to create a building that is contemporary, yet sensitive to its historic and natural context? The purposeful use of stone throughout the building intends to describe a fragment of earth resting on firm ground, offering a variety of astonishing experiences of memory and light. Instead of approaching the site merely as an empty space to fill, the creation of this form-base dynamic perceives the building as an integral part of the panoramic landscape, on both pragmatic and semiological levels.

NAME:
POTIROPOULOS+PARTNERS

PROFILE:
Potiropoulos+Partners is the 2015 rebranding of Potiropoulos D+L Architects to include younger partners and reflect the international point of view on the future of the built environment. The practice was originally founded in 1989 by Dimitris Potiropoulos and Liana Nella-Potiropoulou and has established itself as one of Greece’s foremost architectural firms, with studios based in Athens and London. Today its strong team of highly creative and talented architects and designers addresses the world market, providing full services in design, supervision and consulting across the spectrum and in all scales of architecture and urban design. Memorable architecture based on creativity, research, innovation and excellence is the firm’s defining tradition delivering the highest quality projects for its clients. Combining the pursuit of theory and design issues with the ability to implement complex and large scale projects, Potiropoulos+Partners aspires to be an agent of originality for its clients, its associates, and for society in general, by constantly seeking through its work new creative ideas, innovative technological solutions and other comparative advantages which can provide added value to the built environment. Considering sustainability to be of the highest esteem, the studio is committed to work towards the ecological development of the built environment. Potiropoulos+Partners also specializes in harmoniously integrating new projects into contexts with particular cultural and historic importance. Several of the projects involve renovation and expansion of historically important structures, including national cultural heritage monuments. The studio’s work also includes a number of nationally significant projects for Greece. The practice’s everyday concern is the qualitative and quantitative improvement of its services in order to constantly maintain its high level, consistency and speed of services, but also provide customer support in whatever issue may arise after the completion of the project. Our firm is co-founder and main partner of "Quadrant Consulting Group", an independent consortium of designers, planners, engineers, consultants and technical specialists, which offers a broad range of professional services. Potiropoulos+Partners focuses on the added value ensured by design research, which helps improve the quality of life and benefit the environment and human civilization in general. Whilst occupied with its assigned projects, the studio often seeks to participate in architectural competitions which give the opportunity for innovative approaches by posing research challenges. Thus, there is interaction between experiment and practice in the design process, which constantly contributes new ideas to the production of built works. Potiropoulos+Partners has repeatedly been awarded in competitions and has received many distinctions whilst many of its buildings are the result of these awards. In 2015, the firm was nominated for the Mies Van der Rohe Awards - European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture. The studio’s oeuvre has been presented in national and international architectural exhibitions, and numerous of its projects have been published in the architectural and general press. In 2009, the monograph “Potiropoulos D+L Architects” was published by Potamos Editions including a prologue by Daniel Libeskind and an introduction from Prof. Dimitris Philippides. In 2014 Potiropoulos D+L Architects was included by Panayotis Tsakopoulos among the eighteen architects and architectural studios presented in his book "Reflections on Greek Postwar Architecture", a selection based on “the unique signature that they have added to greek postwar architecture, their participation in the dominant trends of the period and their subsequent divergence – or not – from those trends”
