Reconstruction of a stone house in Trahila - Mani 2010 The project involves the reconstruction of a typical two-storey stone house in Mani, at the traditional settlement of Trahila. The main building elements have been preserved as such. Our intention was to intervene in a distinct way. Additional new elements out of metal and wooden sections have been integrated in the old house stone shell. The space above the dining room remained empty, awarding the impression of a two-storey house interior and highlighting the light metal constructions. A ground floor guesthouse has been added to the house. It was constructed at a distance of the main building, creating thus a courtyard between both the two buildings and the main entrance of the property. A perforated metal door used as an entrance allows undisturbed views to the sea, all through the courtyard. The guesthouse flat-roof is used as a terrace and is connected via a metal bridge to the first floor of the main building.
