Awash with a kaleidoscope of materials and finishes, this formerly cramped apartment bears all the familiar – not to mention cheeky – hallmarks of Greek studio Point Supreme Architects.

Located in Athens, this narrow two-bedroom apartment works within a modest footprint of 77 sqm. Taking this in their stride, the architects looked at designing a dynamic and open space by demolishing all the interior walls and replacing them with partitions and room dividers.

Upon entering the threshold you are immediately met with Point Supreme’s passion for colour. Underfoot a glossy sky blue floor acts as a welcome mat, pairing with the pale blue walls. Flooring plays a crucial part in delineating areas, with a red and white warning stripe leading into the living rooms parquetry floors. On the other side, a corridor connecting front and back with a stone-built floor leads to an interior garden with greenery spilling out and dappled sunlight coming in from a large window.

The interior is articulated around arguably the most important room in the house – the kitchen. Directly facing the entrance it’s placed in the middle of the area overlooking the entire apartment. Like a small greenhouse, it takes the form of a glass box with a deep burgundy frame. Teal and turquoise grace the cupboards and tiles with a quintessentially Greek green marble counter to match.

Neighbouring the kitchen, a small nook settee sits. Painted in a libidinal red with coordinating walls, tiles and a striking renaissance painting to boot this charged corner leads into the bathroom. The blood-red walls and shimmering mosaic tiles follow through into the bathroom, bright and open with a large side window the designers paired fluted glass with cubic fixtures.

The use of various partitions and dividers, although unique to each room, create a feeling of continuity throughout the space while allowing for deep views through the whole depth of the apartment. At the same time, they allow the separation of the interior into smaller areas when needed and add significant storage and display areas.

Materials, colour 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. Point Supreme never disappoints with their never-ending remixes of classic homely Greek architecture for modern living.
