Red Door Residence
Amalia Street Appartment
Oddly Shaped Appartment
The main difficulty of this project while designing the living space was the fact that the perimeter of the exhisting appartment did not consist of parallel walls and there were very intense angles to “play with”. We isolated the corridors and the movement axises the users would need in order to move from one side to the other and after that we created the living spaces, along them, which were designed around the intense angles. As a result the angles seemed to be toned down. The materials that were chosen were in earthly tones, such are ivory lacquer, olive green (for the walls) and oak wood.
Genova Bedroom Design
This project take place in a vacation house in Chiavari, Genova. The need for a new bedroom for the family moved the masterbedroom to a smaller room, with a challenging layout, because the room is very linear, with very small width and large length. We chose to create a wardrobe using a light space divider in the entrance, and the bed was placed in such a way to have a view towards the sea of Linguria. The materials chosen ware oak for the furniture and and off-white forged cement floor.
Appartment with White Tower View
This project is a renovation of an 8th floor, 80 square meter, pent-house apartment located on Ethniki Aminis Street in Thessaloniki, with a White Tower view. The apartment consists of a living room, a guest/ TV room, a dining room, a bedroom, a kitchen and a bathroom.
The apartment building is decorated in the Art Deco style and has clear influence of French architectural motifs, all of which were integrated in the design of the apartment. A variety of elements that already existed, such as some metal pods, were reserved and used as space dividers in the dining room. The owners’ old furniture were also restored and placed in the apartment and any new furniture was chosen to be in the Art Deco and executive style.
The color pallets used were the following:
– Oak wood for the flooring (fishbone and parallel layout)
– Grey shades for seating
– Pink shades for the couch and demo (closet wallpaper in the guestroom)
– Gold and Bronze for accessories (metal tables, lights and door knobs)
– Calacatta marble for details
– Walnut wood for furniture
A new TV room was created as an extension of the living room which is consolidated/ separated through a hidden sliding door with white lacquer. With the relocation of the walls we created a walk-in closet/ laundry room in the hallway, so as to insure storage space as well as make an aesthetic statement because the result creates the illusion of the wall retreating outwards, since the lacquer has the same color.
The intension of the bathroom design was to create a living space for two reasons; firstly to create enough space for the large furniture the owners chose and secondly to refer to a scenery.
Lastly, the kitchen is designed with feminine lines, avoiding sharp edges in order to facilitate movement, especially because the kitchen is an axis of three paths. Also a round table is integrated in the kitchen bench which creates sitting places for three people without cutting off any movement direction.
This project is a pent house on Egnatia Street, close to Agia Sofia, in the center of Thessaloniki. The needs pf the owners led to the fabrication of a bedroom in the front of the house. For this reason, during construction, we chose materials and special structures which hide the bedroom entrance from the rest of the living spaces, such a choice was the frameless door. Restorations of the owners old furniture were a big part of the project and any new gained furniture were chosen in grey tones (the same as the rest scheme of the house) in order to highlight teh exhisting furniture which had very bright colours and pop influences.
Urban Appartment in City Center
CLASSIC RESIDENCE IN VEROIA
In this project, classic line were chosen to decorate the home, which reflect the personality of its residents. Art Deco and eclectistic found on the ceilings and the closets give a gravity to the space without suffocating it, because the colours chosen were lacquers. The fabrics have pal shades to match the classic carpets and the real wood floor of the home.
Contemporary needs, minimum time spent in the house and the greedy search for more and more space have led many people to “minimal living”. The design challenge which accompanies this space, which will only satisfy the basic needs, is the reconstruction of our way of living. This architecture synthesis leads to smart solutions, which challenge “comfort” and “conformation”, and gives users a sense that something was design to fit them like a glove, an sense which makes anyone feel unique, even in a small space.
