During summer vacations on Paros, which is a touristic island, our visit at a quite attractive though non-developing place Molos and our contact with the residents of nearby villages motivated us to study methodically this area for our diploma project.
The occurrence of argil at Molos and the fact that this substance has already been used, in a non-organized seabeach, by both villagers and visitors due to its curative properties, make useful the creation of a building with baths and accommodation and necessitate configuration of the seabeach so as to become approachable and easily used. Moreover, the existence of three villages next to Molos (Marmara, Marpissa, Prodromos) with natural richness and architectural beauty generates the desire to include them to our proposal, creating recreation grounds in master plan (Marmara - artistic studio, Marpissa - open-air market, Prodromos - garden organizing recitations of poems). In order to connect all parts of our studying area, we propose a new net of paths with widenings for station points.
Our planning proposal attempts to incorporate hypsometric variations through the interior of the complex and its essential rooms, and also through their synthesis intending to their normal operation. Our aim is making the building be subsumed under the topography and seem a normal continuity of the ground.
In the interior of the building there is reception – lobby, 21 spare rooms, bathing rooms (massage, hydro massage, pool, mud bath) and places of amusement (café - restaurant, music room, reading room).
The building is constructed by reinforced concrete and stone of Paros, while the interior walls are made from wood and floating screed. Beyond the use of stone, we also make the use of wood, shading mat and marble of Naxos.
