Redefining the Urban Living in Central Athens

Athens, Greece

Feverish urbanization has left the city of Athens with a degraded urban environment, depriving its inhabitants of quality outdoor spaces that are a cultural expectation as well as climatic assets. The aim of this project is to rediscover the lost quality of the city’s environment by exploring the interactions and transitions between indoor and outdoor environments taking account of the complexity of the present urban context and the significant climate change experienced in recent years. The proposals are for a residential site close to the centre that offers the opportunity to reinterpret the design of the urban block and the relationships of its constituents with each other and with the resulting private and public outdoor spaces..
