Greek rationalism: A house from the 60s facing the Aegean, marked by the color of the olive tree

Today we visit a house from the 60s signed by Aris Konstantinidis, notable Greek modernist architect, and completely renovated by the interior designer Katerina Veremi Xynogala, who took on the task with the premise of preserving his identity.

During the reform, old partitions were removed to create contemporary, more open and functional spaces. In this way, the living room, kitchen and dining room are connected.

Limited, the color palette is an ally at the service of another emotion, more sensory, focused on the variety of materials and textures.

The kitchen has a linear layout defined by two elements: the Greek marble island and the succession of hanging cupboards with backlit wood fronts.

A custom made iron panel divides the bedroom from the bathroom. Tone and motif refer to the characteristic veining of Greek marble, which was used in almost all environments.

In the bathroom, double sink and Kavala marble cladding.

The old basement warehouse was unrecognizable. Here the stone wall was combined with aged oak (MH Parquets), which was applied on the floor, in the low bookcases and in the furnishings of the auxiliary kitchen. The reform kept the openings with their dimensions, but replaced the frames with modern models with better features.

In the living room, sofa in 'L' (Sits), wicker stools (Pomax) and coffee table with solid oak top and cross legs (Columbus).

To eat outdoors, a luxury gallery. Design pieces and antique elements come together in harmony thanks to a common factor: the nobility of the materials. The sea view completes the perfect postcard.
