|location||Ekali, Attica, Greece|
A dated residential building in Ekali area, Athens was to be reconsidered. The building was to be extended by creating new spaces and transformed to a contemporary home, also taking into consideration all necessary contemporary infrastructure. The surrounding area ought to be reconsidered adding a swimming pool and lounge area, while correcting architecture faults of the past such as a main entrance which was not visible from the main gate. The challenge of the project was to create something contemporary but timeless from a building which combined elements of different architectural style, some modern, some country, and some neoclassical. All decorative features were eliminated to leave a simpler, cleaner and more elegant style. All openings were reconsidered to make the interior airy and bright. A sense of luxury was achieved in interior spaces with the use of timber paneling on the walls and custom made construction details. The colour palette was kept to a minimum and timeless ” black and white “. The result of the study was a brand new look serving all the clients’ needs.
