Futuristic Residence in Athens Reflecting The Owner’s Passion for Yachts
Greek firm 314 Architecture Atudio completed the design for H3 House, a futuristic residence suspended on pillars, which seems to hover over the blue waters of the neighboring swimming pool. The detached building has a total area of 300 square meters and was constructed on a land of 7000 suqare meters in the outskirts of Athens, Greece. If the shape of this project inspires that of a boat, it is no coincidence: the architects took the challenge of building a home to reflect the owner’s passion for yachts.
According to the architects, the bioclimatic concept of the dwelling (discovered on designboom) implements cooling through its contact with water and uses geothermal energy in order to reduce costs, thus making the project Eco-friendly. A generous outdoor terrace provides plenty of leisure space for the inhabitants to relax, while enjoying exquisite nature views in complete privacy.
