Filoxiny House

As the name suggests - Filoxiny comes from the Greek word ‘philoxenia’ which literally translates as ‘friend to a stranger’ and is more generally linked to the concept of ‘generosity of spirit’ - the project revolves around the need to re-imagine spaces with generosity and unpretentiousness, putting the needs of the residents first. It’s no coincidence that we chose an image from Kaurismaki’s “A Man Without a Past” for the concept description. We wanted the proposal to be as gentle, quirky and compassionate as the film, engaging with people going through a difficult phase of their life without any prevarication.
