A project by Nikolaos Dorizas
Two residences by the sea front in Chalkida, Greece
Designed to host two families with young children, these two houses by the sea follow a more classical line. The families and the area called for the aesthetic of a simpler redesigned south Mediterranean estate.
Bedrooms and bathrooms located in the private area of the 1st floor, allow family and friends to gather and enjoy the internal and external lounges on the ground floor. The sea is to be seen by 80% of the rooms.
Open spaces and pergolas, pool and courts, are spread throughout the gardens, to offer privacy and relaxation during all times of day and night.
Both houses are equipped with latest electronic and mechanical systems.’
