Makridis Associates were hired to transform The Raw Apartment in Thessaloniki, Greece that had not been touched since the 1970s. The homeowners requested a layout that gave the apartment better flow, flexible spaces, a high-end look, and a focus on the city views, so it was gutted and replaced with a modern interior that features a black and grey color palette.
The new layout placed the rooms around the building’s communication core in the center with the circulation around it. The core volume was outfitted with walnut offering up a warm texture alongside the minimalist grey and black scheme.
The oversized bookshelves in a corner of the living room house the owners’ books and collectibles.
The living room and dining flow into the black kitchen and to keep it filled with daylight, floor-to-ceiling black framed doors were installed instead of solid walls. Walnut covers the ceiling to create a uniform space, as do the concrete floors.
The master bedroom includes a bathroom with a dressing area connecting the two spaces.
