The Linear House House by Christos Pavlou

Home > Winners > #86996


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Linear House

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
House

INSPIRATION:
The linearity of the vineyards and olive groove plantations were the inspiration for the design. It seemed as though nature was calling us to follow the linearity model of the landscape and be part of its ecosystem. As a result the house is structured along a longitudinal axis running parallel to plantations but also coinciding with the best sun orientation, summer breezes and views. Linear elements in the house echo the linearity of nature.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
To maximise unobstructed views for all rooms we adopted a linear typology, a simple strong silhouette establishing so relationships between people and nature. A sliding sun blocking aluminium screen controls and protects the interior from direct sunlight. Double height living space with glazed bridges is the focal area of the house connecting all rooms and providing views in and out. The long design surrenders to its natural environment and absorbs the panorama of the Mediterranean nature.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The linear typology produces a series of spaces along a pathway. Spaces have specific relationship with the outside highlighting strong connections between activities within the house and nature. Living space acts as in between space connecting all four levels. A slim aluminium system on ground provides smooth transitions between inside and outside. Mesh sun-screen on first floor remodels the appearance of the house, the day appears solid and protective but the night is light and transparent.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
the projected started in 2015 in Limassol, Cyprus and finished in 2018.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Locally produced materials are used. Cyprus is rich in lime stone thus concrete, clay bricks and plasters are used as the main building material.The frame structure is made of reinforced concrete but additional structures are made of steel providing contrast between heavy and light finishes. Marble stone is used for floors, clay thermal bricks for outer walls, wooden flooring for outdoors, timber cladding for some walls and staircases inside.Triple, tempered glass is used for the gazed bridges.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
site area 1517 sq.m. area of building 607 sq.m.

TAGS:
double height living, rural house, aluminium mesh, sun screens, swimming pool

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
To reduce energy the following strategies applied- 1. passive solar approach, right orientation, cross ventilation, chimney stack effect 2. High performance insulation materials, 3.glass with light transmission 73 ,solar factor 41, 4. Shade devices blocking 80% of direct sun 5.Led lighting 6. Automation 7. sustainable sources ,38 photovoltaic panels, 8 solar panels.Furthermore swimming pool is placed next to living area so as water evaporates cooler air is drawn into the hous

CHALLENGE:
Our challenge was to establish relationships between building and nature. Our proposal enhances the beauty of the Mediterranean countryside. A linear typology was adopted where all rooms have views through big openings highlighting the connection with nature. A challenge was to design a sustainable house. We have incorporated passive solar concepts which included photovoltaic, solar panels, cross and chimney stack ventilation. Orientation and shading devices reduce the amount of solar gains.

NAME:
private client

PROFILE:
Christos Pavlou architecture studio was found by Christos Pavlou in 2003 and is based in Nicosia, Cyprus. Is a small studio but we do know how to take care of our clients in a very personal and friendly manner. Our practice is focused on housing, commercial as well as interior architecture. We listen, we search, we learn, we design. We are aware of and sensible to the environment, the land parameters, the specific site views, the climate conditions and the needs of our customers. Our projects are distinguished by their formal simplicity, the integration of inside-outside, the contrasting realities and the in-between zones. Our architecture is driven by the need of solving a complex program in a simple and clear manner. Our language is based on define, simple forms aiming to express the collective memory of a specific culture. Having said that forms do not always provide ready-made solutions but they are rediscovered during the design process. It is a stage by stage approach which allows the build up of different special relationships and smooth transitions between spaces. Energy efficiency, automation technology, sustainability and ecological designs are part of our working procedure.
