The property is located in the middle of Plaka, one of the most picturesque neighbourhoods of the Greek capital, at the foot of the rocky Acropolis hill. From the living room windows you can gaze at people going about their everyday grocery shopping and filling up the local tavernas. The building, in which the apartment is situated, dates back to 1800, as does most of the architecture in the area. ‘Slab’ is an enclave of contemporary simplicity within the neoclassical ambiance of Plaka.
The apartment was fully renovated and the design dealt with limited space, dictating a flexible layout. On the junction of the entrance-hall, the living room and the kitchen a wooden box has been placed that provides necessary storage as you come into the flat and also unfolds to separate the kitchen from the other two areas.
The apartment sits on the corner of two streets. The curve of the building is reflected on the inside giving a unique aspect to the living room. The wooden floors, the off-white walls and the Basaltina stone elements, create an elegant atmosphere. Tall ceilings and long windows give an unmistakably neoclassical character to the spaces.
The combination of the neoclassical dimensions and the contemporary elements create an exciting and personalised yet relaxed and elegant atmosphere.
