The design of a new building in the Pelion area should take into account the current needs that exist or are being created in the present frame of time and the possible future requirements that the building must serve in conjunction with the institutionalized respect for the architectural formulation of the previous centuries. The present architect has to listen to, to explore the past, the history of the architecture of the place, to create something new that will not stand as motionless star or hybridism in the temporal continuity and evolution of dwelling and habitation. The regulations on the morphology of the houses in Pelion have no relevance to the restrictions on construction that were objectively created in previous centuries, such as the economic difficulties and the mechanical possibilities of producing building materials such as timber and stone. Once the finite set of money and technology combinations, it was eventually shaped into an organic composition that primarily served housing through a simultaneous and meaningful defense practice. The buildings turned out to be small forts and the "Pelion-like" architecture, a defensive, fortress-type typology through which life itself continued in that place. In the present research project, the aim was to understand the dialectical continuity of the development of houses in Pelion in order to ideally produce a functional hostel unit in Zagora, Pelion. The architectural conception encompasses all the aforementioned elements of the site's history, material and intangible conditions, climate, modern requirements for semi-mountainous habitation, Presidential decrees, and the hospitality potential of the site and an effort to study and refine it in associated terraces with the medieval and later constructions of houses and monasteries in Pelion and Mount Athos as unique and authentic.
