The aesthetics of a building is one of the principal aspects considered in architecture, when this is combined with the perfect location then the result is H50 by homm®
H50 by homm® is an apartment block located in Petralona – a low height building in the oldest district of Athens.
Built within an 118m² plot close to Filopappou hill – a well-known archaeological park of the city – the three storey house contains a set of apartments, a roof garden and an open space situated at ground level. The concept was based on the idea of an monolithic structure, made from a single piece of stone such as marble. The aim was to expose and contrast the rough and smooth surfaces of the metamorphic rock through the sweeping triangular curves of the exterior.
Shared roof-top gives clear views of the famous pine-shaded Filopappou Hill with its green slopes and the Monument of Filopappos crowning its summit.
The patios are mounted at the southeast side of the plot, where all of the apartments face the street. Metal folding shades protect the courtyard and the rooms from the sun, as well as emphasising the monolithic aspect of the block and the required privacy of the residents. Modular elements are embellished upon the design, inside and outside of the building, expressing a unified visual language. The irregular, yet complete form of the structure introduces a pure vision emphasised through the use of raw marble.
