Located on the top of a hill in an olive grove in southern Peloponnese, Villa Ypsilon is a private summer house which name came from its iconic Ypsilon shaped green roof.
Architects: Lassa Architects
Location: Finikounda, Greece
The arcs roof acts as both an accessible extension of the terrain, while framing the most significant views from the inside out, bifurcating pathways define three courtyards that form distinct hemispheres with specific occupancy depending on the course of the sun.
It also provides vistas towards the bay of Schiza and Sapientza as well as mountain views towards the east. The height of the house is limited to the tip of the olive trees to enable its integration with the surrounding landscape.
