The architecture office Tense Architecture Network based in Athens recently did an amazing Concrete house on the hillside in Kallitechnoupolis closed. The concept is to frame the beautiful views through sliding glass doors where an equally sloping hill rises.

 Since the residence borders on two other residences on both sides, one recognizes a concentration inwards and an escalating development of the areas towards the east. The inclined architecture follows the natural inclination. The glass windows are laid from the concrete slabs like in a shell. This cut opens the residence to the outside so that one can enjoy the air, light and beautiful scenery on the opposite side.

A swimming pool is enclosed in the lowest point of the house. On the level of the entrance there is an elongated terrace where the concrete slabs create a walled but uncovered outdoor space.

The facade is built with reinforced concrete, the material being two-colored. Earthly dark on the outside, and a slightly lighter shade inside. The geometric rigor of the prism is violently broken into three areas: the shell is broken, the boundaries from within, nature is invited into the house.
