sitting at the foot of the imittos mountain, the h77 house by 314 architecture studio is a private four story residential building in voula, a southern suburb of athens, greece. thanks to its strategic position towards the sea and upperlands, this 300 sq. m. house is designed as an extroverted residence with adaptable features.

314 architecture studio’s design is a result of certain plot specifications, as well as looking into the traditional japanese origami craft. hence, the triangulated architecture sits in accordance to the natural surrounding — especially the rocky terrain which in some occasions is flattened and used as a terrace, while in others becomes part of the building as a structural feature. the uppermost storey located inside the roof contains the master suite; middle levels include living rooms and secondary bedrooms, while the lowest level includes secondary rooms and a parking area.

h77 house’s basic characteristic is its large windows covering all façades and protected by an innovative system of movable aluminum curtains that enhance the bioclimatic quality of the house. these curtains are programmed through an electrical system in order to optimize natural lighting and ventilation during the day, depending on the hour and season.
