STATEMENT It is our job to build sustainable constructions. Our aim is to design zero footprint buildings. We joint New Urbanism and agreed with the Venice chapter for liveable cities. When practising we use all the recognised design tools for combating climate change, energy efficiency, pollution and urban sprawl, such as car-free areas, walkable areas, light rail transportation system, pedestrianization, use of renewable energy, use of eco-friendly materials, while we take care to minimise the waste and the carbon emissions.

  • Holcim Awards 2007/08 | Submission PDF from kat-oikia to syn-oikia residential project HA08_VCSUD Measuring up to the target issues for sustainable construction [ Self assessment ] Quantum change and transferability In first phase the construction, where the building is the sculptural object that is structured by deconstructing the city, in the second phase the deconstruction, where the city is reconstructing by the deconstruction of the building.For this aim the building has moved parts thus is transformed constantly with the use of technology. [ Self assessment ] Ethical standards and social equity Apart from the resident, in the planning of building took part and the neighbours that wrote their opinions. Actively participated and the municipality of Thessaloniki and determined the relation of building with the square. The region is the historical core of city and the constructional work are overseen by architectural committee. [ Self assessment ] Ecological quality and energy conservation The building cures the climatic shock of his residents. That is the difference between the climate of house and the climate of city. The city has more heat from the house the summertime and more cold from the house at the winter. The movement from the house to the city and vise versa causes climatic stres in the residents. This building makes economy in the consumption of energy and it is friendly with the environment without isolating inside his residents. It makes them feeling comfortably with the climate of neighborhood and it facilitates them to moving between their house and their city. [ Self assessment ] Economic performance and compatibility The work's manufacture has low budget. This happens because the constructure has been planning with high precision. With the use of technology of planning and the suitable guidance of contractors they work of manufacture is checked. All works are forecasted by the plannings and so become the bigger possible economy. [ Self assessment ] Contextual and aesthetic impact The house reverses the relation of internal space with the exterior space. Makes the resident conceive the view of city and the view of sea as elevations of certain other next buildings.So the resident swhen they are inside and are looking to outside they feels as if they are outside from the house. The first aesthetics of house is that the residents does not feel his presence when they are inside, but they feel like being at the open space. On contrary from the outside viewing the presence of house is intense because it looks like a movie that tells the old histories of city. [ page 2 ]
