Our primary goal while redesigning the 73sq.m. apartment in Thessaloniki city center, was to create a relaxing, comfortable and pleasant place for the owners, whose permanent residence is Switzerland and intend to use this apartment for their visits to Greece.

The residence has undergone a complete renovation. Its layout was that of 1960s buildings, with separate rooms and long corridors. Our intention was to create an open space that embraces the natural light and the amazing front view. A large, 2.2m long, sliding partition wall was created, in order to unite the living room and dining room with the front bedroom, offering a spacious and bright living area. When the sliding wall closes, it provides the option of a separate guestroom. The entrance hallway furniture integrates with the kitchen area, also creating an, aesthetically and visually, continuous space. The residence also includes a master bedroom, a large bathroom and a guest wc-laundry room

The residence is autonomously heated with gas. The piping systems and heating equipment were fully replaced.

The apartment’s refurbishment includes the replacement of the old windows with new PVC window systems, new lacquered doors, porcelain tiles, laminate floor coverings and melamine cabinets and closets. The materials and color palettes used, are basically in neutral and natural light colors. Natural wood, oak melamine, light-grey tiles, off-white corian tops and brass-detailed luminaires, mix up in order to create a pleasant and friendly environment. The dining room, in the heart of the apartment, is highlighted by the use of “Almond Blossoms” wall covering.
