Inhabited Observatory

Inhabited Observatory

The observation post is located on high ground near the sea, in the middle of the deserted area that it monitors. The view of the landscape offered by the building should be interpreted as a view of a single indivisible region equipped with a bed, a washbasin, a toilet and two showers. The observation post becomes habitable even though the building cannot be closed in any way, nor does it contain partition walls, its spaces are differentiated by the height of the floor in each case. The different levels are accessible by ladders. On the ground level is a living room with benches, a concrete table and an open water tank.

Published in the book Oral Architecture, Athens, Patakis, 2004. With the collaboration of Yannikos Vasiloulis.
