5bd maisonette in London period conversion

The property in Little Venice extended over three floors of a period conversion, including a loft conversion. It had not been renovated for years and its 4 bedrooms shared 1.5 bathrooms. The project entailed the extension and full high-specification redesign of the property to create a modern living space, including a 5th bedroom / study, 3 additional bathrooms and an open-space kitchen/dining/reception area.

Modernisation of a three bedroom apartment

The apartment was part of a building built in the 1970s and not renovated since. The original layout included three separate, small reception spaces, plus a confined kitchen. The first requirement was to unify these spaces into a large open-plan layout, with a kitchen that maintains a degree of separation. The second requirement was to modernise the bedrooms and bathrooms, including creating a new en-suite bathroom for one of the bedrooms. The reception rooms were designed around a large “box”, with its sides covered by a combination of American walnut and mirrors, to enclose the sitting area’s audio-visual equipment, create much needed additional storage space, and increase the privacy of the doorways to the WC and the bedrooms.

Family residence with pool in the countryside

The project entailed the design of a new five bedroom residence, with a swimming pool, on a hill side with distant views of the sea. The layout of the residence has been designed to maximise views of the pool and of the surrounding landscape from within the residence: the reception areas have been designed in an L-shape around the pool area and opening up to the landscape stretching out in the distance, while the two bedrooms on the first floor extend, like a telescope, towards the sea in the horizon.

Listed building conversion into boutique hotel

The goal was to restore a dilapidated, late 19th century neoclassic building in the centre of Athens and convert it into an eleven room boutique urban hotel. The key challenge was to balance maintaining the character, overall layout and original features of the building, protected by its status as a listed building, while creating a contemporary, yet unique 5* urban hotel reflective of its history and local context.

Hotel bar and show-kitchen self-service restaurant

The project involved modernising and upgrading the main restaurant and bar of a five star all-inclusive hotel to meet the specifications of a major international hotel operator.  The first requirement was to convert a traditional buffet restaurant area into a well-functioning modern self-service restaurant with 12+ show-cooking stations that could concurrently serve up to 500 guests. The second requirement was to design a new main bar for the resort that would also constitute the epicentre for the resort’s social events.

New spa and relaxation facilities for beach resort

The project entailed building a new, high end spa, based on international specifications, in an existing space of a 1980s beach resort. The specified location was a largely unused basement space with no natural day light. The challenge consisted of converting this space into a pleasant, elegant 500 square meter relaxation centre, which would accommodate a range of different service and treatment areas.

Modernisation of pool area for luxury hotel

The hotel was built in the 1970s and is considered a prime example of the modern architectural movement in Greece of that era. Planning regulations impose significant constraints on the design and choice of materials for any modifications to the building due to the latter’s architectural significance, as well as its location within an area of archaeological importance. The project, currently ongoing, entails redesigning the swimming pool area by modernising the shape and surface materials of the pool, while also refurnishing and repaving the surrounding area.
