The kitchen in a long and narrow 2-bedroom apartment in Athens was placed in the middle, directly facing the entrance and overlooking the entire apartment. It took the form of an open glass room; a glass box with plants, like a small greenhouse. The corridor connecting front and back was turned into an interior garden, with a stone-built floor, plants and generous light coming in from a large window.

All internal walls were demolished and replaced by various partitions and dividers; these create a feeling of continuity through the space and allow deep views through the whole depth of the apartment.
At the same time, they allow the separation of the space into smaller areas when needed and add significant storage and display areas.
Materials, color palettes and atmosphere between the different programmatic areas of the house vary greatly, adding to the otherwise small apartment an unexpected feeling of variety and richness.
