The house up the hill was first inhabited in 1982 and was originally designed by the architect Nicolaos Dorizas. The current owners of this fairly neoclassical house have been living in there for about a decade. Their personal love and interest in arts and in collecting works and objects by various artists was a key element for us. Our aim was to design the interior in a way where the display of their art collection will be integrated into the habitants’ everyday living. Since the building is well designed, the renovation of this house didn’t result from the need for restructuring but from the desire of the owners to give character to their personal space. From the very beginning, we worked having in mind to create the conditions that would enhance their lifestyle and aesthetics.
Our intervention was based mainly on two goals; that of retaining the general atmosphere of the house in relation to the external environment and the sea view and that of decorating by using vintage and new furniture as well as customized functional objects. The whole interior is an approximately 120.00sqm space extending to 3 basic levels: basement, ground floor, and first floor. Each level serves different everyday needs and at the same time is a unique piece of an art puzzle.
Although the decoration is often changed by adding or replacing pieces of art, the layout study always keeps the sections of the house clearly separated and can be viewed as a framed image from a camera's lens.
