Located in one of Athens’ suburb – Kifisia – and borrowing its name, the Residence in Kifisia occupies 350 square meters and was designed to suit the lifestyle of a family with four members. Due to the small, almost square shape of the plot, architects of N. Koukourakis & Associates created a sense of privacy and comfort by adding open air spaces. The ground floor spaces – foyer, sitting room, rest room, dining room, kitchen – were flooded with natural light, while the upstairs was separated into living, working and resting spaces for the kids. The second floor was reserved for the master bedroom, gathering views of the surroundings and featuring a vast veranda. Guest quarters and service rooms were designed to occupy the basement level. Adorned on the outside with coffee-grey coating and wood, this modern residence is strongly connected to the outdoors through extensive use of glass, but feels private and comfortable at the same time. You might like to compare it with another work by the same architects presented a while ago – see which one you like best.
