The apartment is located in an old post-war building in an Athenian neighborhood. The characteristics  and complexity of the floor plan were the central pillars for the final design. The space of the apartment is evolving around the staircase of the building. Thus, the idea for the conversion of the dwelling was based on the synthesis of the spaces around the staircase and the development of the rooms around it (living room, bedroom, bathrooms, kitchen and dining room). A complete renovation as well as the configuration of a new identity (of the space) were part of the needs and preferences of the client.

 

Having relied exclusively on the building’s shell while still maintaining its introversion, open spaces were created for light and air permeability. The two main facades of the apartment including a large balcony and a patio are facing an open road as well as an atrium. The living and dining room were placed towards the open road, whereas the bedroom, the walking closet, the bathrooms and the kitchen were placed at the back side of the building. The corridor unfolds around the staircase, which introduces you to each of the mentioned spaces.

 

The materials that helped implementing this idea were mainly glass and wood in horizontal and vertical surfaces. It was attempted to combine these materials in order to achieve a modern and retro style of the house. We used the earthy tones of natural materials as tools to decorate the white canvas of the interior. With this technique, light and color diffuse through the apartment, creating a harmonious contrast with the dense urban landscape.
