Georgaki St. Apartment

Project: 
Georgaki St.
Owner: 
Private
Location: 

Set in one of the most central of Thessaloniki’s neighborhoods, the apartment occupies the second floor of the building with an area approx.  55 m2. The strategic position of the apartment due to its urban context in articulation with domestic space issues prompted the project to focus in the following principles:

  • Spatial and functional re-adaptation in order to make use of the maximum floor area and the natural daylight;
  • Concentration of equipment and storage into functional walls and cores, in order to free up space;
  • Unification and distinct limitation of the uses, especially in the living room area with the timber paneling system on the wall;

The custom made timber paneling systems wears a genius hidden mechanism which gives the impression that the doors are floating on the wall. Mutable in its usage conditions, it allows various interactions and different hierarchies between spaces.
