A magnificent stone country house in Papa Nero, Eastern Pelion, with breathtaking views, is the new creation of architect engineer Stefanos Adamakis and his partners. It combines traditional technique with new construction trends, offering owners the warmth and at the same time all the comforts of a modern residence, all adapted to the particular element of nature of Pelion.

On a plot with an area of ​​4,703.64 m2 (off plan) in Papa Nero, since the 1980s there was a small holiday home for a family of four from Volos and a permanent residence for many years in Athens.

Access to the residence was via an internal road uphill via the main street Agios Ioannis – Damouchari. The land with an excellent view of the sea, but with a large slope and height differences from the lowest point to the highest point, makes the construction of the new building extremely difficult and expensive.
The family of four had associated the family summer vacation with the pre-existing vacation home and loved the area very much.
The new construction program had to cover the needs of at least 3 couples (parents and children) with comfortable bedrooms and indoor bathrooms, as well as kitchen, living and dining areas.

An important condition is the creation of comfortable outdoor and semi-outdoor living areas for the morning as well as the afternoon and evening.
It was decided to add surface and height to the existing ground floor with a basement part of the old building, which has been preserved and improved structurally and energetically.

The two-storey addition on the west side includes the master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, a small kitchen area and a large independent veranda – pergola with an excellent sea view. On the ground floor the other two bedrooms with corresponding organization and exit to the large veranda on the ground floor.

The reception-living area and the kitchen have been organized in the existing building.

The east side addition includes the living room – everyday with the corner fireplace. It is an independent morphological building, connected to the rest of the building by a lower collar – reinforced concrete slab. It is a stone ground floor with exposed masonry in Argalasti marble and a tiled roof. In the apron of the openings, in the preki and in the crowning of the roof, horizontal anti-seismic shingles in reinforced concrete in memory of the wooden shingles of the traditional stone structures of Pelion.
The masonry is evident both inside and outside the building and inside, the roof made of irregular sections of chestnut is also evident without the intermediate suspended ceiling.
The frames are also made of wood according to the traditional standards of chestnut wood varnished in a light shade.
On the east side, under the existing large trees, which have been preserved as an eyesore, an outdoor seating area has been created, which is perfectly usable in the morning, due to the excellent shade created by the existing vegetation.

Particular attention has been paid to the bioclimatic logic and to the creation of sufficient natural, natural lighting through the ventilation of all the interior spaces of the building as well as the semi-exterior and exterior spaces for comfortable living every day and every day. the seasons of the year.

An important parameter that influenced the architectural proposal is the good adaptation of the building to the natural terrain of the plot, avoiding large excavations and the construction of high retaining walls.

A division into individual volumes of the building was also imposed respecting the scale and the traditional logic and morphology. Of course, this does not mean a sterile copy of tradition, but a creative reference and respect for the basic internal principles of anonymous traditional architecture.

These are scale, respect for the local climate, use of local materials, good adaptation to the natural slope of the terrain, transparent natural lighting and ventilation of double-opening spaces when possible, while taking advantage of new materials and construction methods.

The integration of the E/M installations was extremely difficult. Heat pumps were chosen
which were placed on the back side of the building in special places – the mezzanines, without being visible and creating a problem with the facades and the morphology of the building. Inside, air ducts have been used that pass through false wooden ceilings, providing cooling and heating in all areas of the building. The cover is made with 3 roofs in square wooden tiles at 3 different levels and heights contributing to oncoplastic differentiation and accentuating the different volumes of the space.

The terraces and outdoor seating areas are paved with rectangular Pelion slabs and white marble nets in an irregular pattern.
In the large courtyard on the west side, a barbecue area and outdoor kitchen have been set up. The space was covered with a wooden roof of exposed chestnut tiles.
The retaining walls for the creation of the courtyards as well as the good adaptation of the building to the ground are in exposed stone and have a maximum height of 2.5 meters. The internal access road creates parking on two levels, one downstairs with access via an exterior stairwell to the east courtyard and one upstairs to the level of the west courtyard for easy transportation of supplies.
