Thisseion apartment II

← Back to the Portfolio

In collaboration with ECUALaboratory / Maria Peteinaki Architect,

Thisseion apartment II is a second variation on the same original 60s floor plan as Thisseion apartment, where the first one was an extrovert view the second one is an introvert feeling, where the first one was a view towards the linear tripartite scenic space of the façade windows, the second one is  a circular arrangement of spaces around a core and perspectives to the surroundings through cracks between the elements around this core, where in the first one the tripartite stage was empty for movable elements, in the second one the core is manifested in the gathering table.

The project began after the owners visited the Cycladic island of Anafi.. In Anafi they were inspired by the smoothness of the architectural curves, an element widely used in the area and the fragmented space. The goal was not to make a Cycladic apartment in the center of Athens, but to use the curves freely, in a way to create a truly warm and playful space. The core of the composition, an “inner yard” is defined by different flooring, this being tiles, where the table gathers everyone together. The spaces stand in different floor heights, in an almost circular array around this table. The openings between these spaces allow perspectives/views to the outside. The challenge for the elevated living room/ guest bedroom was to take advantage of the view to the Acropolis. A zig zag glass partition, separates this space from the “core” while allowing a view through the window, and at the same time creates a small sitting corner.

An important element of the study of both variations is the users’s active involvement in it.

Το διαμέρισμα στο Θησείο II είναι μια δεύτερη εκδοχή πάνω στο ίδιο αρχικό σχέδιο του ’60. Εκεί που στο πρώτο κυριαρχούσε η εξωστρεφής γραμμική διάταξη των τριών παραθύρων με τα εσωτερικά συρόμενα σκούρα, εν είδει, τριμερούς σκηνής, το δευτερο οργανώνεται γύρω από μια εσωστρεφή κυκλική διάταξη των χώρων με φυγές ανάμεσα τους.

Σημαντικό στοιχείο της μελέτης είναι η συμμετοχικότητα των κατοίκων σε αυτή.
