The diploma project has to do with the study and the planning of an agro-touristic “campus” containing 34 beds. It is located between the villages “Ano Kefalari” and “Kato Kefalari” of the prefecture of Drama. Aim of this project is the beginning of an agro-touristic development of the area. The natural intensity and the innumerable natural water sources are the remarkable phenomenon. The water that spouts creates rivers, contemporary lakes and a particular natural vegetation that diffuses in the above mentioned flows. The route of water influences the surrounding space that counts a lot of villages, thousands of acres and landmarks of the wider area.
These are: 1. The aquaculture between Ano Kefalari akd Kato Kefalari, 2. The square of Ano Kefalari, 3. The pine forest of Kirgia, 4. The park of predator birds in Agora, 5. The archeological site of Filippoi and the first baptistery of Europe at Lidia, 6. The “clay spa” of Krinides and 7. The European path 04. Their union will be a cycle road that will join all of these with the agro-touristic “campus”.
Main factor of the area choice is the big fish farm that functions there. The agro-tourists have the opportunity to occupy with and have experience on the primary production, in this case of fish. This production is a part of a closed system of cultivation where other crops participate (mushrooms, worms, duck weed, hydroponics).
The basic lines of the project come from the natural shapes of the surrounding environment and the random shapes and limits of water. That way we have formed seven layers: 1. The natural forest of the area, 2. The river flow, 3. The road net and the bicycle net, 4. The closed loop agricultural system, 5.The dack-base where leans our campus, 6. The tourist houses and 7. The public buildings.
