Livestock farming is an integral part of the economic and cultural heritage of Metsovo. The seasonal accommodation of animals in the surrounding area of the artificial lake of the Aoos springs is deeply rooted in time.
This project focuses on the creation of summer installations for indigenous animals in the artificial lake of the Aoos springs, on the basis of bioclimatic and educational elements. The installations include a laboratory for processing animal products, short-stay rooms and staff rooms. The variability in size and semi-permanent character of the buildings take into account the individual characteristics of animals. The laboratory and short-stay rooms are open to visitors and their purpose is educational, since they suffice to accommodate schools and visitors for a short time.
The aim is to create a complex of buildings capable of accommodating people and Greek animal breeds, some of which are facing extinction, by offering ideal conditions for their safe stay and interaction.
