The concept concerns the construction of four independent bioclimatic houses in Vlasti, Kozani.
They are to be included in two adjacent plots of 93.05m2 and 200.6m2. These plots belong to four siblings and within them are stone-built buildings, which will be demolished.
Vlasti is at an altitude of 1.280m, has about 1.000 inhabitants and from the urban side is characterized as a "traditional interesting settlement", with the general and special building conditions applicable to this category.
When designing the dwellings, the basic parameters taken into account were the observance of the building conditions, the independence of the buildings and the bioclimatic requirements. Also, the size of each residence is about the same as the rest, so that it is distributed to the owners fairly, as far as possible.
As far as bioclimatic requirements are concerned, the proper orientation of the buildings, the contact between them, was initially chosen creating a "linearity" in the layout of the buildings, in order to limit the thermal losses. The conformation of the tumors also allows the natural lighting to enter the buildings and at the same time protects them from the extreme weather conditions prevailing in the winter.
The masonry in the main parts of the dwellings was also chosen to reduce the ecological footprint of the buildings, with the use of topical shale and reuse of 70% of the existing buildings.
Diversity to the facades of buildings, masonry, exposed concrete and smooth surfaces (coatings), creates an aesthetic result that is in harmony with neighboring buildings as well as with the entire settlement, because there are stone buildings and more recent buildings with surface coatings.
