T-shaped dark megalith hosts back-to-basics young family home

9495 ratings | 277456 views
To create a light-filled home on a small plot where an adjacent building blocked the southern sun, Tilemachos Andrianopoulos elevated a concrete prism (housing bedrooms for a family of 4) freeing up the space below for indoor/outdoor living and dining rooms. Walls of plants provide “green screens” to give the family privacy inside their otherwise very visible ground floor (three of the walls are all glass). Owners Eri Mitsostergiou and George Toulantas wanted an open space to raise their two sons and there are only three doors in the entire home. The boys’ bedrooms are connected and doors can slide shut between them if they choose more privacy as they grow up. https://www.tensearchitecture.net Also by Tilemachos: Pythagorean home amidst olive grove offers views & protection https://youtu.be/0fs5JxH4qJU *faircompanies https://faircompanies.com/videos/t-shaped-dark-megalith-hosts-back-to-basics-young-family-home/

11:23 Why did that guy, a stranger, closed the door in the bathroom with the children? If somebody does that in my house with my children i would FUCKING KILL HIM ON THE SPOT

Interesting house and interesting champagne socialist owners.

Imagine being a teenager and can’t slam the door lol 😝 beautiful home

I think they like the basement the best, because it is most like a normal room with walls. The rest of the house lacks privacy, and feels insecure. Those kids when bit older, will want their own private space, good luck with that. And as others have said - it is so dark despite the bottom floor having windows all the way round.. If the bottom floor was totally redesigned, and this was a home for a couple with no kids then great. That pond is oversized, parking space?

This is, hands down, one of the most unique, well-thought out designs I have ever seen. I would love to live in this place. *So cool!*

Nice and functional house, but WHY the hell do they let their kids walk around inside and even sit in the furniture with their dirty shoes on? That’s plain disgusting tbh.

The reason why their house is so dark is because they focused so much on “southern sun”. There is no southern sun. The sun rises in the east and sets in the west.
Lazarus D (3 days ago)
DEBS the sun rotated around the centre of the earth. Hence, northern hemisphere places face south towards the sun, Southern Hemisphere places face north. Towards the sun. C’mon bro

Confusing. They talk so much about the garden, but the grass and the plants are messed up. The house looks dirty

I’m hating this new trend of using huge light curtains to create divisions. Its unnecessary and bad for lighting and allergies.

They are constantly talking about the light from outside that comes in but inside it is dark as hell . They use the interior lighting in broad daylicht . Complete wrong color choice inside . Neither does the home radiate domestic warmth . A concrete bunker that originated from the fantasy world of inexperienced architects and customers who want to be different .

Nice for a space ship design, but i wouldn't more than a week there. So dark, depressive and claustrophobic. The kitchen has a school-vibe.

At 13:14 the subtitles say "Because the plot was really small we had to elevate the prison."
pr va (16 days ago)
Square, rectangular or circular tables work better. Full-length dining table in use for a meal - hard to have one big conversation, people will end up talking to just those next to them or opposite them. "Pass the salt please." - a minute while the salt is passed from one end of the table to the other.

Europe has so much more style and taste than US...it is sad. Our “custom” homes look identical...stick built...tacky... I love the brutalist/concrete/stone/glass it is function and form married in harmony....I have just always loved this look...

tyistrom (25 days ago)
Dark jail and too much concrete but with a little light for mood changes would help . The home nice if you over look the color and temperature the concrete brings. But the home was still a smart choice when it comes to finance. And summer weather conditions and being spacious. They love it so that's that.

David Cattin (28 days ago)
I have NEVER wanted anything as much as I want this house. Those gorgeous curtains moving in the breeze, the pond, the front door, and that stairway! I couldn't enjoy it fully for most of summer due to mosquitoes here in Indiana. No, it isn't as simple as putting some repellent on. I am a magnet, and now with all the diseases they carry, I just couldn't do it. LOVE seeing a home like this filled with kids, adults, and a cat to see how the space looks when actually used. Photographers often try to get a shot without people, but they add color and scale. Wish more videos and décor magazines would include people. Anyway, if you need me to house sit, call me!

I really think, in case you affected by it, to do as much as you possibly can to learn on how to translate your taste/passion into your way of living in order to intervine it effectively, is so much you get in return when achieve.

In my opinion the kitchen should be lighter. But the rest of the home is one's taste to what anyOne would like. Thanks for sharing your video. 🙃

The narration is so specific that I can actually feel the space along with her reasoning of a design approach. Love the house, the design, the architecture. Throughout the video, I felt wanting to stay in a house like this.

It's amazing what happens when we are thoughtful of the environment we want to live in, as opposed to selecting an off-the-shelf, cookie-cutter solution.
Yushi Kuang (1 month ago)
I always like when people try to maximize the use of space. This one is like a bunker on stilts...how can we qualify the interior? A modern cave. It’s pretty cold and dark. Not enough cozy for me. But i’m impress that they can fit a family of 4 kids inside.
Hans Hoerdemann (1 month ago)
A cute and creative family.
Ashley Clark (1 month ago)
I think it’s beautiful. People talking about why focus on letting light in then paint/decorate things so darkly. Listen to what they are saying, they explain it. And there is plenty of light coming in, not everyone wants to live in an all white home, especially not when you have kids to make a mess.

i wonder: do people build houses for living... or just for showing off? when you have more joy showing your house, than live in it, that is not your "home", but just a human construction

This looks straight outta Divergent.
James Patterson (1 month ago)
I think I get where these homeowners are coming from. It's not the amount of light coming into the structure, but the amount of light & visuals surrounding outside of the structure. So you have this open & airy environment yet a dark cozy interior atmosphere. To see the world from the inside without the world seeing what's on the inside.

He also designed another house they had on the channel of the house in the olive trees if I’m not mistaken
Nizar Chaya (1 month ago)
I like the use of southern light, but the interior is too dark and raw to reflect its use. It's a good idea to take advantage of the basement, really love the stairs. One thing that throws me off is the lack of privacy, especially in big families, I think the feeling of ownership/personal space is a must, or else personal space takes life in corners/furniture/objects.

For people who talk so much about wanting to catch as much sunlight as possible, they sure filled the damn house with dark walls and corners and a lot of shade...
