Designed by LASSA Architects Villa Ypsilon is a near 500 squared metre home sitting within olive groves in Greece. Its flowing ‘green roof’ delineates three courtyards and shelters an eye-shaped pool and sun-deck. Additional facades trigger shadows at certain times of the day and encircle a sunken seating area.
Most of Villa Ypsilon’s structural elements are prefabricated, which has led to a significant reduction in assembly costs and a shortened construction time. A CNC machine was employed to fabricate prototypes of the green roof and contribute to the final shape of the home. Add the use of locally-sourced materials like concrete, terrazzo and marble and its green credentials begin to stand out. A marriage of beauty and sustainability.
