In the garden of this residence beside the sea in Nea Potidea Chalkidiki, in a glade of an already shaded landscape from the existing unique pine trees of Cassandra we developed areas for “beer life” of the family. On the basis of our philosophy in designing residential surroundings, always is given emphasis on acquired experience living the landscape rather than in the virtual landscape perception. So in the glade was implemented the shaded pergola, with barbeque area, with subsequently resting area-outdoor fireplace creating a dynamic utilitarian set. Materials used are wood for the floor (deck) of barbecue area and the pergola, local stone and plaster for seating “external fire place area”.
