THE PRIMITIVE HUT OF 2000
Mount Pelion, Greece
The architectural intervention on the vast rock volumes of Mount Pelion consists of small structures, semi open spaces, local stone paved paths and natural stone furniture scattered all over the rocky site and organizing natural geometries. The intervention aimed to be as mild and as discreet as possible, as the rock's apparent extension and it is built out of its very material. The structural simplicity and the cross-scaled unity of materials complement it to the natural surroundings and attain the mild transition from inside out and vice versa, from natural rock to the built volumes and the absolute adaptation to the landscape.
