Dream House Private Residence by Kipseli Architects

Home > Winners > #49564


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Dream House

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Private Residence

INSPIRATION:
This house was designed with primary aim to materialize its' owner's dream. A dream of a home that will not only fulfil his functional needs and accommodate his family but also will satisfy his deepest desires, even those rising from his subconscious. On one hand his love for the old, the classic and the antiques and on the other hand his appreciation for contemporary architecture, simple geometric forms, the sense of purity and color.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Dream House incorporates architectural elements that one rarely finds in a one single residence, creating a two-fold scheme. The traditional architectural elements such as the pitched roof, the small openings, the high ceilings, the use of stone and the ornamented wrought iron railings, create a dialogue with their current architectural expression such as the terrace, the large glazed surfaces, the direct access to the landscape and the contemporary simplistic forms.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The design of every space of the house is based on a different architectural approach attempting to mirror the several needs and desires of the owner and family. Therefore they have the opportunity to interact with a variety of spatial elements and experience controversial architectural qualities that give them the ability to create new thoughts and feelings that influence their everyday life. Although the house seems to be already shaped, without knowing one can discover multiple spatial surprises.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in 2010 and finished in 2015 in Kefalari/Athens, Greece.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The merge of the classic and the modern elements is achieved by implementing a black and white palette to the whole residence and by the symbolic use of intense color in specific elements. This particular approach that refers to a child's sketch contributes to overcome naive realism.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Overground: 250 sqm Underground: 250 sqm

TAGS:
dream, house, color, staircase, subconscious, traditional, contemporary, architecture

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The project's research is based on the continuous study of the owner's interests, values, opinions, memories, attitude and lifestyle. The design was constantly evolving through an open dialogue and creative brainstorming between the owner and the architect. Through this psychoanalytical process the architect succeeded in subtracting hidden patterns from the owner’s subconscious so as to create an architectural design that could express his multifaceted personality. Conscious needs and preferences combined with subconscious vague images and desires take shape creating the feeling of a home that balances between realism and surrealism, the ideal and the dreamed.

CHALLENGE:
As the concept of the house is based on the blend of traditional and contemporary architecture, the objective was to achieve a harmonic synthesis of the different materials and elements along with the composition of Western architectural influences within the Greek built environment, considering the owner’s past expatriation in the UK. The restricted size and narrow physical shape of the plot and small footprint leaded the architect to accommodate vertically all the facilities of the house. Additionally, in order to reflect the owner’s wish all the features of the house from large scale to smaller scale, from the roof, the staircases, the openings to the basins and doorknobs were custom made and designed. This task was quite challenging due to non-specialized construction methods and the scarce building materials that could be offered by the construction industry in Greece during the economic crisis.

NAME:
Kipseli Architects

PROFILE:
Kipseli Architects - means beehive in Greek - is a brand new concept for the development of architecture in Greece and beyond. The basic concept is to transform the urban space, concentrating on the human existence within it by using architecture as a necessity in everyday life. Focusing on the value of the uniqueness of each idea, architecture is related with other forms of art. As a living organism, it aims to create a dynamic network of architects and designers that can work together as a group or individually for a common purpose. Embracing the dynamics of diversity as a natural evolution of things, Kipseli Architects deals with the design of unique, playful and inspiring living spaces. The objective is to “plant the seed” for an architecture that is not defined by a set of regulations, styles and forms, but an architecture that has the power to influence everyday life.
