apartment renovation in mets

client: private

location: Mets

architectural design: archivirus

date: 2013


we were asked to renovate a 70's appartment  in the area of mets in athens.the view of the acropolis and the lycabettus hill defined the proposal of the new layout. we proposed the daily zone (living room area - dining room and kitchen) to be placed towards the view and the big terrace, opposed to the initial layout which placed the kitchen in an isolated room at the back of the appartment lacking in air and natural light.bigger openings were proposed to serve a better view. the new plan moves the kitchen in the front in an open layout with the living room area. a distinct differentiation in the choice of the materials was proposed for the two uses. a big bedroom borders with the daily zone to get the advantage of the view while the old kichen is replaced by a smaller bedroom for guests or children.
