‘Room with a view’: The orientation towards a direct view of Acropolis, was the main principal for the design of this small, open plan one-bedroom apartment, next to Kalimarmaro stadium.
Being an addition on top of an old two-storey family house, a -very carefully placed- light structure, was required.
Thus, its new staircase, had to squeeze in a tiny given space, connecting with –and transforming- the floor below, allowing the house to function on three levels.
The new volume that emerged, followed the simplicity of the existing facades so as to form a single body.
The good integration of the new volume regards also to the choice of color palettes, as well as the materials used for the interior of the new rooftop.
