The project is about transforming a typical 60’s apartment in downtown Thessaloniki into a short-term rental. In order to adapt the apartment to the new use, it was necessary to combine the originally elongated lounge with the front bedroom in order to increase the living spaces and to increase the permeability.
A minimal color palette is used, white – gray – wood shades are chosen, so that this uniformity eliminates the fragmentation of spaces and visually enlarges the compartment. White dominates walls, furnishings and wooden floors, which are also painted white. The original mosaics are revealed and preserved. In the kitchen and in the living room all the furnishings are redesigned in dominant visible wood under simple geometric shapes. The bathroom uses a pressed cement mortar in order to dissolve the limited space.
Original paintings by Fotini Potamia, Lambros Antaras and Thomas Vournazos are chosen to decorate the space.
