The project concerns the redesign of a large 1960's urban apartment in Kavala in Northern Greece. The plan was largely redesigned, so more natural light could enter the apartment.  Many interior walls were removed, so that the living room would be connected with the kitchen space, allowing a more transparent relationship.

It was also very important that the apartment would not lose its connection with its original character. Therefore, the characteristic elements of the 1960's. such as the herringbone oak parquet and the marble floor were restored and highlighted. The entrance hall's marble floor becomes the focal point of the apartment, while everything else works in harmony with it. Local marble is used for the kitchen floor and the kitchen and bathroom countertops, creating a dialogue with the apartment's original condition and local heritage. Local and natural materials are also used in the bathroom in order to expand this dialogue.


The selected color scheme works in harmony with the original parquet and marble floors, allowing them to become the focal point of the apartment.
