Chania City Residential Property Renovation
Chania, Crete, Greece / 2020
The design task was to renovate a two-storey residential property and stimulate the views towards the Souda Bay and the White Mountains.
The purity, simplicity, and rigor of the volumes of this property were intended to highlight both the interior and exterior areas of the structure by providing a balanced and efficient consistency to the whole.
The first decision was to clean the premises of all the existing partitions to restore the original concrete structure and thus reveal the true volume of the space. By internalizing the original structure and style appearance into a new one we try to explore the deeper relationship between building and the context.
Earth tones are selected to support the idea of materiality and ensuring a bright interior. The final result achieved through the use of micro cement on the floor and the functional elements. The same texture is attained on the walls using the same tone of paint with an irregular plaster base.
