About the project
Maria Kardami Design Studio undertook the design and renovation of a penthouse loft in Palaio Psixiko, one of Athens’ greenest residential suburbs.
The new design is characterised by a decidedly contemporary, stripped-down urban elegance.
The disciplined colour palette of black and white, with herringbone wood parquet flooring throughout, unites the modern open-plan interior and maximises the loft’s feeling of light and space.
The resulting living spaces
have a contemporary quality
which harmonises man-made
structural elements with
nature while avoiding the
cliché of mountain rusticity.
Two walls, meeting at one corner, are fully glazed, offering expansive views over the city below and flooding the living spaces with light. Sliding doors with narrow black metal frames open the interior to a generous balcony wrapped around the two glazed sides of the apartment.
