‘nadja’ consists of two apartments on subsequent floors that were renovated and connected with a stair in the middle. the family residence was completed in 2014 by point supreme architects in athens, greece. the lower level is an open, marine-like environment with large pieces of furniture anchoring the family’s communal activities like floating islands.

the areas throughout are flexible, all focusing on a central location rather than sectioning off. every room is furnished with custom-made constructions that double as visual connectors between spaces. cupboards, seats, stairs, shelves, and tables are mixed with numerous typologies of screens, interior partitions, curtains and other filters.

the central, and most complex construction, is the main staircase. aside from its obvious use, it incorporates the living room and kitchen cupboards, a glass partition, built-in planter, blackboard, and a painted pink sun that rises through and up to the second floor. above, the second level hosts a dense living environment more earthy than its downstairs counterpart. bedrooms are designed with an optical ‘split’ that combines a social area and a more intimate, private zone.

floor detail, influenced by greek architecture




the floors are rich compliments to the architecture, influenced by the location’s greek island architecture. the clients followed point supreme closely throughout the process, continuously supporting and challenging the design. the project was completed in collaboration with KN group construction.
