LOW COST VACATION HOUSE IN KHALKIDHIKI, NORTH GREECE
This small low cost vacation house which lies in a small private island in Chalkidhiki, in the north of Greece, was designed as a family retreat, of minimum facilities. The house does not have electricity supply; there is only fresh water available. The lacks of facilities, as well as the difficulty in bringing the building material on site, lead into designing a very simple house. All the rooms communicate only through the surrounding pergolas. The summer sun is very dense in this part of Greece; therefore the need for shade is a must. Colored plaster in a shade of a very earthly color was used for the exterior surfaces.
