The aim of the project is the creation of a bioclimatic village in the area of the Holy Apostles of Rhodes.
The altitude in the area escalates between 126 to 135 meters above sea level . The orientation of the square is south . This requires us to allocation of housing depending on the contours in arched address.
The settlement is defined by the ring road and cut into two parts by a central axis. The movement of housing is through pedestrianization , perpendicular to the settlement. Intervals provided an opportunity to stop and Day use with the landscape. At the bottom there is a longitudinal roof . The same is observed in drawing square in the upper level of the settlement. The unequal provision enables housing a portion thereof and simultaneous access to passable roof . In this way the roof turned into artificial observatory.
The village is divided into four zones:
The first and second placed residences 100 m² for families with two rooms . In the third zone positioned residences 120 m² for families with two rooms . The fourth and lowest zone , houses 55 m for seniors.
In the architectural character of the settlement, we considered creating neighborhoods and this is achieved with the four zones are created , as more specifically the union of some of them by providing communal open spaces. The distances between dwellings are such as to allow the houses to utilize solar gain . The houses do not shade each other throughout the year since the distance of one from the other is at least twice the height. In this contribution and uneven plot of the settlement. Planting acts as a windbreak in northern western and eastern winds providing the required wind protection . ( trees planted on the north side are evergreen to provide wind protection throughout the year and especially during the winter months). Also planting contributes to creating the right microclimate of the area.
