YEAR OF COMPLETION
DESIGN TEAM & CONSTRUCTION OVERSIGHT
Theodoros Arsenopoulos & Konstantina Nastou
The project concerns the major refurbishment of a light and airy mezzanine apartment with a surface area of 46,00 m2, in a ’70s multi-storey building in the centre of the city of Larissa.
The design’s key focus was the extraordinary colour palette and the permeability of spaces. Excellent use of the corridor guiding into the apartment was made by creating a hidden wardrobe covered in mirrors, which evokes a sense of luxury and lightness of space at the same time, making the volume of the structure totally inconspicuous. On the exact opposite side of the corridor, a custom-made console table with a top made from a solid green marble slab from the island of Tinos was placed against the wall. The interior panel of the entrance door is painted in the same colour used on walls.
Moving on to the main areas, a wall was removed completely to create an open-air plan kitchen and living room, fulfilling the needs for natural lighting as adequately as possible. To this extent, fanlights were used above the bathroom and bedroom doors lending an air of grandness to the apartment.
The shocking pink kitchen cupboards in conjunction with the white wall tiles maintain a visual balance between the hot colour of the cupboards and the equally hot colour of the vertical surfaces of the apartment.
