Architecture Design of Glyfada Residence

Description About The Project

Glyfada Residence, versatile home with stunning outside views by SAOTA to adapt the client for a versatile apartment that could easily accommodate large social events. Also, provides a sense of intimacy when there were no guests. He also required a gallery-like space that could accommodate and display artworks.

In addition to this, the front of the building presents a layered approach with expansive glazing, recessed columns, and moveable screens that moderate the bright maritime light and provide privacy. While allowing the interiors to open to the views. The rear of the building presents a contrastingly solid facade with puncture openings to shelter itself from its neighbors to the side and behind.

On the other hand, the living areas represent a sophisticated interplay of solid and void elements, with interconnected planes that ‘slide’ through one another and intersect, borrowing space from each other while creating unity and coherence. Besides, functions intuitively defined and enhance the ability of the various spaces to provide distinct experiences. The lounge and dining areas tucked away on either side of it to create more intimate social spaces. A kitchen located behind the dining area, with the option of being screened off. An extra family room/ spare bedroom accommodated behind the lounge on the other side.

Indeed, the rigorous and disciplined approach to architecture and interior design enhances the clarity of the volumes and creates a sense of sophistication throughout. The restrained palette and subtle shades make for an understated minimalist environment. The resulting unencumbered sense of freedom seems a fitting architectural response to the natural Mediterranean beauty of the apartment’s setting.

The Glyfada Residence Gallery:

Text by the Architects: This five-unit seafront apartment building, designed by SAOTA with interior architecture by ARRCC, is located in the southern suburbs of Athens at the gateway to the Athens Riviera. It overlooks the beach and the Aegean Sea with views towards Aegina and the distant hills of Poros, while the Hymettus Mountain rises behind it. The Glyfada Residence occupies a corner site on the frontline of the promenade overlooking one of the local beaches. It comprises four apartments located on either side of a triple-volume arrival hall, which provides access to landscaped gardens with twin swimming pools to the front. Besides, a double – level penthouse spans the width of the podium on the upper level, set back from the building’s edge.
