Harmony Apartment | Maisonette Apartment Renovation | Glyfada, Attica, 200 sqm
The house is situated in Glyfada, a southern suburb of Attika. The apartment is a maisonette situated on the last two floors of a polykatoikia (a small multi-floor apartment building) built in the early 2000. The main concept was to bring as much light as possible inside the apartment reversing its main north orientation. Also its structural elements were hidden inside wooden louvers, which form the main spaces of the apartment. An important part of the design was to induce the senses. At the terrace floor high technology materials such as synthetic wood create privacy, shade, ventilation and incorporate greenery into the urban environment.
