Awarded Contemporary Mountain Property in Kalavrita, Greece by bllend.
The commodity in terms of Karl Marx’s critique of political economy as an object or very good created by human labor was the driving concept behind the style concept.
The consumer defined the desired outcome as keeping the mountain context, without emitting stereotypical rustic remembrances of existing mountain residential typologies. It involved a major renovation, of a common mountain home. The aim was to develop a space where everything would be manufactured on site, utilizing simple supplies metal, pine wood and mineral aggregates, human labor and experience. The main concept behind that was to let the objects obtain use and sentimental worth when the owners would start off feeling.
