Architecture Design of Grid House

Description About The Project

Grid House by Neiheiser Argyros, is a renovation of a 1970s modernist home in Evoia, Greece, that involved stripping the building back to its concrete structure to create a series of minimalist living spaces. Indeed, the structural frame of the home originally infilled. But Neiheiser Argyros sought to open the building up by showcasing its structural grid and merging what was originally two separate apartments into a single home with large windows and patio areas.

On the other hand, overlooking the Euboic Sea, the home originally designed by Greek architect Nikos Hadjimichalis and sits next to another of his houses that also recently renovated by Neiheiser Argyros. Besides, at times the grid infilled with brick to create enclosure and privacy. At other moments it contains full – height wood – framed windows to orient views out into the garden and sea. In other locations, the grid is left open and creates exterior-covered patios, balconies, and pergolas. In addition to this, the landscape designed to wrap around the house and cascade in terraces down towards the sea.

Once inside, a new staircase connects what used to be two separate independent houses. Hence, allow for the private and public spaces of the house to be re-organized respectively into bedrooms on the lower floor and an open plan kitchen, living and dining room on the upper floor.

Inside, the clean, modernist details of the interior have been retained and complemented by the addition of colourful accents such as a pink stair balustrade, timber joinery and furniture and marble countertops.
The interior has a minimal and modernist finish. A large paved patio space extends around the front of the home, with sliding glass doors giving the ground-floor bedrooms direct access to the outside.

Text by the Architects: The grid house is about repetition and difference. A simple and regular concrete structural grid creates a variety of interior and exterior spaces with views across the Evoian Sea. The project is a full gut renovation of an existing modernist house that creates a 6-bedroom house tucked into the landscape. Also, appearing modest from the entry but opening up its full width and height to the sea.
