For that purpose the architects relocated the kitchen and instead created a comfortable room in its place. Following this design strategy, the flat was “divided” to the common areas and the private rooms at the back.

Entering the apartment you find the living and dining room area expanding around the fireplace, which was redesigned and coated with dark natural Kourasanit filler, contrasting the all natural and bright tones. Expanding the fireplace, a seating spot was created next to it, and lots of storage inside its hidden cupboards.
