Contemporary Duplex Overlooking the Thermaic Gulf in Greece

Spanning just over 1,000 square feet, this contemporary duplex in Thessaloniki, Greece, overlooks the Thermaic Gulf and was designed by NORMLESS Architecture Studio for a young, growing family. The project scope involved a full renovation of the two-floor space to create a functional, cozy space for the homeowners.

The modest square footage required utilizing every bit of space by modifying the layout to create an open plan for improved sight lines and functionality. The lower level houses the more public spaces, including the kitchen, living room, guest bedroom, and bathroom, while the upper level comprises two bedrooms and a bathroom.

The kitchen, as seen through the window above, features rich blue cabinets, warm woods, and black details. Throughout the rest of the interior, the designers utilized a white, black, and grey color palette with accents of green and blue.

Upstairs, a series of wardrobes line one wall with black and white herringbone tiles covering the floor.
