The apartment of approx. 200sqm, is completely reconstructed to give a new breath of life in an attractive corner of the city with unobstructed views of the Thermaic Gulf. The spaces are reorganized to serve the needs of a family that seeks a sense of privacy and emphasizes the balance and sense of family home. The ‘entrance’ of the coastal front inside the house defines the design, creating interesting visual escapes. With materials and tones that avoid tensions and complexity, the relaxation and the immediate appropriation of the spaces by the users is achieved. This condition in combination with the proximity of the liquid element compose a setting that escapes the strict urban net and creates a harmonious environment of well-being.
