Located in Psychiko, a well-to-do neighborhood of Athens, is the Psychiko House designed by Divercity Architects. Built according to the owner’s brief of a property “allowing maximum freedom of movement and flexibility,” the house is divided into three distinct but interconnected zones. The middle zone on the ground floor is clad in stone and inspired by the defensive rock of the nearby Acropolis. The remaining two zones make up the second floor with one transparent zone making up the living area and the other imagined as a pair of binoculars and offering expansive views of the city from its cantilevered structure. Outside is a swimming pool that mimics the flowing shape of the property. White walls, pale wood and stone, and expansive glass lends the house a modern, airy feel.
