314 turns 60s house in athens into an office merging nostalgic and contemporary design

athens-based 314 studio uses lighting and colors to form its new office in a 60s house in glyfada, greece. merging greek traditional hues with futuristic silver curtains and romantic contemporary elements, the architects prove the possibility to develop the ageing culture into modern-day solutions.

to maintain the iconic greek style, 314 has colored both exterior and interior walls in white, while the oil paint reflects light creating a mysterious atmosphere. each inner wall is accompanied by the LED tape on the floor, which culminates the architectural basis — the plan of the building.

the rooms are divided by silver curtains and mirrored doors — this solution adds an unexpected futuristic sense to the space. outside, in the courtyard, the same play of colors is maintained — the garden is covered with white pebbles, while the olive and lemon trees are decorated with silver ribbons.

to define the accessible roof, a vertical lightweight metal structure is set along the perimeter of it. there, the magenta-colored floor and palm trees in the middle complete the original concept of contradictory architectural styles combination.
