Renovation in the city center

 52m² Apartment

Completion: July 31, 2019
Project Type: Apartment, 52m²
Architects: Eirini Krasaki

A typical 1960’s apartment in the heart of Athens has been renovated following the needs of the present, all the while protecting the authenticity and character of the past.

Spanning a total of 52m2, the apartment is located on the fifth floor of a “polykatoikia” apartment building, and comprises a spacious living room with a dining area, a kitchen, a large bedroom with a walk-in closet and bathroom. Thanks to its position, it enjoys sunlight throughout the day.

The area in which the apartment is situated was the heart of Athenian middle-class life in the 1960’s, so the design’s main goal was to preserve the property’s characteristics and identity. The old and the new are coming together through minimal lines and warm materials, such as the wood found in the kitchen and the walk-in closet — perfectly matched with the cool colors in the lobby and the marble and metal in the bathroom, creating overall a harmonious result.
