Apartment renovation in Chania
This 2-bedroom apartment is organized around a central diagonal axis pointing to the sea view, which is the main highlight of the house. Initially it was a vacation home which later became a primary residence, after complete renovation.
The client wanted a house which could feel summery and relaxing all year-long, but remain sleek, elegant, and very functional.
For this reason, the design concept is defined by the seafront textures, colors, and light, but interpreted in a more subtle, minimal way, to avoid usual narratives. It could be described as “seaside chic”.
A very important tool in the design was the use of perspective: Color harmonies and use of large frescoes on the walls make the spaces appear larger and connected to the exterior views. Other optical refinements such as the Frame TV (a tv set which looks like a work of art when not in use) add to the general feeling.
