DescriptionThis project is about a proposal for the Koufonisia Classical Music Festival Complex located at Ano Koufonisi Island of the Cyclades islands Complex aiming at the cultural upgrade of the region. The Development consists of a circular Theater and Musical Stage along with its facilities and three small residences that host the musicians who participate at the event. The buildings are arranged diagonally following the ground slope towards the existing main residence of the owners. The buildings draw their inspiration from the Greek Cross Temples with the implementation of the corresponding facade forms and plan arrangement, thus reflecting a spiritual and peaceful atmosphere. The Residences are composed around a central courtyard, which is dissolved in smaller private yards, each belonging to the corresponding residence. This arrangement enhance the communal living of the Residents and encourages social participation. The Theater has an advantageous location with regards to the unobstracted South views over the sea and the port of Koufonisi village.
