The entrance from the street is created by two parallel walls which contain the staircase and “slice” the earth in order to guide you to the ground level of the house.Save this picture!© Vangelis PaterakisThis level accommodates the most introvert-private spaces of the house, the bedrooms, and it has been designed to either open up towards the landscape or be completely isolated from it, according to the mood of its inhabitants.Save this picture!© Vangelis PaterakisSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Vangelis PaterakisIn contrast, the level of the living-dining-kitchen area, the more extrovert-public spaces of the house is surrounded by glass, allowing the landscape to become part of the living space.

Researchers are hoping the nanoburrs can offer an alternative to surgically implanting arterial stents that, over time, release drugs to treat or prevent plaque build up on artery walls…Read more here (Computerworld)
