Private Residence Ekali, Attica, 2018

North of Athens, and more specifically in the Ekali area, we created a private Mediterranean garden with endemic plants that harmoniously surrounds the open-air sitting garden of the house. A natural fence from Myrtus tarantina and a wooden door separates distinctly the garden of the living room from the vegetable garden which is a significant part of the surrounding area. Finally, on the street and in the open-air parking area a permeable plastic paving grid was placed which can be filled with either grass or gravel and allows rainwater full penetration. It creates a sense of natural environment and improves the house's local climate by lowering the temperature.
