Interior design for a single family house in Thessaloniki v.1

Client: Konstantinos Iakovidis, Evi Deliou

Location: Panorama, Thessaloniki, Greece

Date: 2007

Project architects: 207×207 architects

In a single family house in Panorama, Thessaloniki, which was already being inhabited by the owners, we were asked to complete the entrance and design the children’s rooms.

The entrance already had a space for a built-in wardrobe, an exposed electrical control panel, and a small bathroom that needed to be designed.

The key issues that we had to meet were:

1. The width of the space for the built-in wardrobe was not enough

2. The electrical panel needed to be hidden

3. The space of the entrance hall had to remain as comfortable as possible

4. A separate space for shoes had to be designed in combination with the bathroom.

As for the children’s rooms, the family had three small children and two available rooms. Therefore, the primary issue was to design a bunk-bed that would fit the two boys for an adequate amount of time and allow for space to play and later study.

The object of research for this project was the use of a more formalistic approach in dealing with practical problems and the use of conventional building methods and materials to achieve an innovative result.
