DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
RockSplit, a house in Kea Island, Greece

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
House

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration is the island of Kea itself which is defined by its rocky dry hillsides creating poetic sculptural formations, amplified under the mediterranean sun. This wild raw nature, is what this building tries to preserve along with the use of the traditional manners of building, which have survived through the centuries, but lately neglected.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The steep hill and the plot’s narrow dimensions determine the pronounced and gradient form of the building which rises from the mountain and over the valley of Poisses, to finally balance itself with the surrounding traditional dwellings and the natural rocky context. Eager to apply the fundamentals of sustainable construction, the largest sum of the stone used, was from this same stone quarred from excavating the site itself, in order to lay the foundations.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This secondary home of a family of four, spreads through 3 correlated volumes, which clearly can be defined as the seating & kitchen volume, the circulation tower and the sleeping & storaging volume. Around these volumes, the perimetrical terraces are unfolding, some under the surface of the hill, some at the same level and some projected over it.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Kea Island, Cyclades, Greece The lisence stage started at mid 2012 and finished at early 2014. The building stage started in November 2015 and was finsihed in June 2016. Having the right collaborators, chosing the contractor and the skillfull workers correctly is very important.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Apart from this traditional tecnique of the humid free gap between the rock and the building, which is principlally used to drain the waters coming from the mountains, leaving walls and foundations dry, the house includes in its design an under-floor heating installation which circualtes hot water, generated by the solar heaters installed in the roof. The cooling is achieved from cross ventilation. The pérgola is shading the openings from the morning sun leaving the sunset colors slip in and paint the white interior ´canvas´ deep yellow . Finally, the rainwater is collected in the 3 rooftops and stored in an underground reservoir.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
115 sq.m built footprint.

TAGS:
Greece, island, stonework, sustainable, mediterranean architecture, stone,

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Throughout the entire process, but most importantly before the construction the visits paid in the island formed part of the result. Ovserving the traditional methods of building, the knowlageble methods of self efficience, the color of the stone depending the position of the sun, the use of traditional dwellings in the island even if they are for shading the livestock or storaging the harvest. Most of all is the deep affection and love that the island inhabitants show for the island. This was a parameter to take under consideration

CHALLENGE:
The creative challenge was shaken initially form the narrow and steep site. Also the regulations in the Greek islands can be strict depending where the site is located and in our case had also to be approved by the archeological department. Is very positive they really examine every case very closely, because their main concern is the natural context and how a new building respects it accordingly. Both issues had a positive impact in our design.
