Villa Ypsilon

Villa Ypsilon

Located on a hill in an olive grove in Finikounda, Southern Peloponnese, this summer residence is characterized by an Ypsilon shaped green roof that acts as both an accessible extension of the terrain, while framing the most significant views from the inside out. The circulation through, around and on top of the house forms a continuous promenade comprising indoor and outdoor activities. This configuration allows the use and enjoyment of the entire house perimeter, whose height is limited to the tip of the olive trees to enable its integration with the surrounding landscape. The roof’s bifurcating pathways define three courtyards that form distinct hemispheres with specific occupancy depending on the course of the sun.
