Sixty square meters was enough to create an independent apartment on top of an existing 1960’s apartment building in Athens’ high-density neighbourhood of Neos Kosmos.
The metal construction allows for a living room and two bedrooms while leaving space for two outside terraces: one external and one internal that can be united with the living room. The internal terrace, hidden from its surrounding, has elevations which are white and bright, while the external elevations have been clad with metal panels reminiscent of the zinc rooftops of European capitals.
The main details and furniture elements are solved in a compact way or built-in to make optimum use of the space and to create a result made to measure, and to fit as a handkerchief.
