On a hill in Daratsos area of Chania, in an existing incomplete building in the masonry phase, we were called to intervene in order to modify the building according to the needs and aesthetics of the new owners. The design started from modifying the interior spaces with functionality in mind. Then, we redesigned the openings, enlarging them and creating views towards the view. The new openings created new paths that connected the interior of the building with the exterior spaces. The exterior spaces were again designed based on the needs of the owners.
