A 110 sq m apartment was reconstructed on the top floor of a block of flats in Athens.
Almost all the internal partitions were demolished and new were constructed with the purpose of a functional and aesthetic upgrading of the apartment.The living area, the kitchen,the dining room and a guestroom are on the lower level and the bedrooms with the bathroom are located on the top level(attic space).The access to the attic space is through a linear staircase.
The project involved the reconstruction of an old apartment , in order to become the new home for a young couple with a child.A careful manipulation of the space within each floor and section, made it possible to maximize the usable space and adapt the house to all of its owners’ modern needs.Finally the old flat converted to a stylish, practical and flexible space.
The project’s key idea was to create a large living room and to bring in as much light as possible so as to transmit absolute calm and repose. Beside the large openings in living area the internal staircase was used as a tool to bring light from one level to the other.
The staircase describes a form of its own, occupying an entire wall and creating a sort of path with a single flight of wooden treads proceeding with a banister of slim steel stays anchored to the ceiling.
The simplicity of the interior design which uses wood, steel and white lacquer, enhances the quality of the space and emphasizes the meticulous composition of the house’s different elements. The dining room with the green colored ceiling that is located in the center and is symbolically the heart of the space, transmits a sense of warmth and calmness.
