blueprint for construction
In search of the unique DNA code of the traditional settlement of the region, we discovered two major threads:
the spatial and the material one. The existing open space near the chapel starts the development of the village
that continues into a newly-arranged street, a square with a fountain, a swimming pool with a barbecue pavilion,
and a garden with a tennis court. Hopefully, these spaces will become the center of social life here.

Eighteen new low-rise houses preserve the local conventional scale. They are grouped in clusters, the fireproof
walls of the neighboring houses abutting each other. The material of the existing stone houses seamlessly continues
into the new masonry profile of the street.
