House in Dionysos by Nikos Koukourakis

The main architectural thought was to design a modern house with straight lines and big openings to a flat garden. This enables the natural light to travel through every space of the house, reducing the amount of energy needed to illuminate the house. Furthermore the house was designed and built according to ‘’green architectural choices of materials used, such as:
·Building’s orientation: glass openings facing south
·facade insulation system
·aluminium windows with thermal – break system
·double glass windows: external 6mm energy glass, 14mm gap, 4mm +4mm triplex glass
·home automation – smart house
·70% of the lighting fixtures are using LED technology
