ARCHITECTURAL & CONSTRUCTION DETAILING
Binary forces. The total of two "units" towards a common result. A building of modern residences. BUILDING SYMMETRY. Constructing with symmetry means creating balance. The rule for a parallel common life in a building of residences. Twin buildings, each in its turn, outline with their shadows, the daily passing of the sun from east to west. Linked together in the center by a bridge, penetrated by a column, like an antenna of communication. Columns, symbols of structure and entireness from the days of the Ancient Greek Architecture. They engulf and support the idea of coexistence. The historical memory and the modern way of living, meet together. The patio, between the two buildings, creates a "distance of respect", a breath of esthetical harmony and tranquility. A wooden corridor on a green carpet of grass, leads to the entrances of the residences, while revealing a swimming pool at its far end. The meeting place. Free from exaggerations and with wise distribution of common and private functions, the building "Symmetry" highlights a new perspective in "constructing" the idea of cohabitation. The text written on the entrance, reveals the philosophy and the Doric perception of the "common".
