Panorama Achaea, Greece
designed by architect Nikos Mourikis

Project ID:

Name: Olive and Stone residence

Type: Residential / single-family house

Architects: Nikos Mourikis

Location: Panorama Achaea, Greece 

Client: Nikos Mourikis

Completion year: 2018

Photography: Pygmalion Karatzas

Client brief:

The brief asked for a retrospective photoshoot of the architect’s body of work.Additional editorial services were provided for the portfolio (web and print edition) and for media publications and competition entries.

Project description:

The plot for this residence is located in the Panorama village in the outskirts of Aigion town, in a 10.000 sq.m. olive grove in an 18% northern slop with panoramic views over the Corinthian Bay. The area is characterised by scattered permanent and holiday houses with the predominant chromatic feature that of the olive trees. 

The longitudinal side of the residence is placed facing north, separating the day and night living zones with two distinct floors. Auxiliary spaces are placed in the semi-basement due to the slop and the main atrium / terrance of the house is placed within the volumetric composition. The pitched roof and the composite construction from reinforced concrete and stone follow the earthly colours of the olive grove landscape. A robust construction with distinct volumes, leaving large opening for the residents to visually interact with the surrounding nature and open vistas and connect the mountains on the south with the sea on the north. The cantilever elements are also placed within the volumetric envelop providing shade and protection from the wind. A projection of the earthly materials with a freestyle masonry attempts to integrate the composition to a disordered context.
