Reconstruction of an apartment in Pagkrati.
Though its oldness, the apartment has been totally renovated, by creating new open plan living spaces. By changing the inside plan, the family has more free space to spent its time to the living and dining room and the kitchen. The existance of a column in the middle of the room and the vertical pipes of the the central heating system were pretty restrictive for the new layout, but conformed sucessfully. Light colours to walls and kitchen, in combination with the oak wood colour laminate, came to enlighten the apartment, as it is on the first floor of a high-buildings spot of Pagkrati.
The apartment features an open plan living space (lounge, dining room, kitchen), one bedroon, bathroom and storage room.
Apartment = 70 sq.m.
