Text description provided by the architects. The project turns a 60’s house in Glyfada into an architectural practice. The main idea of the renovation was the creation of an intense contradiction between the existing traditional form of the house and a new contemporary design. Interventions are focusing on materiality, lighting and a new imaginable roof.

New materials have been used in a way they underline any damages caused during time passed. Both exterior and interior walls are painted in white oil paint reflecting light and creating intense shadows. Silver curtains are placed in order to separate different rooms/ office spaces which alongside with mirror cladded doors they highlight a futuristic atmosphere. Moreover, a garden delimiting the property is covered by white pebbles supporting the presence of white color in the synthesis while silver ribbons are decorating olive and lemon trees.

LED tapes are following the shapes of interior spaces culminating the most precious thing in architecture; the plan, while providing gradient light at the walls. In every room, white light balls are placed embracing a more nostalgic character. A vertical lightweight construction resembling a cage describes an imaginable roof. Following the same romantic direction, the roof floor is painted in magenta color.
