The Floating Apartment by Urban Soul Project

A corner flat in Thessaloniki, Greece, that’s positioned with the best views of the water, was designed by Urban Soul Project. The interior of The Floating Apartment is fairly minimalist with a neutral color palette, hidden linear lighting, and simple rectangular shapes throughout.

Floor-to-ceiling glass panels frame different views of the close-by water making it feel like the apartment is floating above it, hence its name. They purposefully configured the layout so that the main living space would be overlooking the street, as that’s where people spend most of their time when at home.

The embedded lighting creates a dynamic element while drawing your eye around the room.
