Vacation house

Type: vacation house, renovation, floor extension

Location: Chorata village, Lefkada island

Size: 96sqm

In a rural environment a two storey house, built before 1955, has been integrated. The ground floor/basement used to be the property’s storage area. There was no interior staircase and the room’s height was only 2.0m. Nowadays the building is transformed into a couple’s vacation house, therefore an extension is proposed where the entrance and the staircase are placed. The existing masonry remains and the new volume that is created due to the increase of the total height is made of different materials in order to make a mark on the old structure.
