Refurbishment of an apartment in central Athens for a professional couple who recently moved to the city. The focus was on delivering a contemporary design that supported the clients’ lifestyle and accommodated the frequent visits by friends from abroad.
The existing underlit and compartmentalised apartment was turned into an open plan living area with separate bedrooms. Kitchen counter serves as an axis around which daily life revolves.
The industrial-style steel and glass doors to the bedrooms and bathroom offer a firm, yet permeable threshold between the shared and private areas of the apartment, and bring in an amount of flexibility to the use.
