On the third floor of the apartment building complex, in Kalamaki Athens and specifically, at the apartment C3 of 122 sq.m, is assigned to us by the owner to design an urban, modern apartment. The brief focus is on cosmopolitan living and influence lifestyle. The brief is for a hip, trendy, and ultimately industrial aesthetic, with a contrasting softer and less edgy side to it as well. We have to work with textures and tonal contrasts, layering similar neutral colours providing a calm feeling for the home. The basic materials to use, are white washed English brick for the walls, polished concrete floors in combination with rugged wooden floors for the kitchen and bedrooms and a vintage tile with rhombus motives for kitchen and wc.
The basic element in house is the rusty perforated metal cladding of the fireplace with the black granite counter internally. The furniture consists of raw, unfinished wood, whether it’s a coffee table, dining table, or end table. At least one wooden piece of furniture is a must have to achieve genuine industrial décor. We make the choice of chairs with leather finishing and exposed steel legs, much as the traditional chesterfield furniture. In regards to the lighting we use modern yet geometric designs with brushed or grainy steel.
