Discreet and Refined Luxury: Diametro35 by Ritmonio for A Prestigious Residence by Block722 Studio
Block722 based in Athens took care of the conversion of a pre-existing concrete building into a luxury private residence in the heart of Kifisia, a sought-after district of the Greek capital.
The two housing units obtained, both duplexes, are characterized by a great design and attention to detail.
The fluid harmony that goes through the entire building, a distinctive feature of the design approach by Block722 studio, is enhanced by the use of natural materials, with a perfect sense of balance and a discreet and refined luxury.
The first apartment occupies the ground floor and the mezzanine, overlooking the large back garden; the other apartment, on the upper floors, boasts a roof terrace and an extraordinary view of the Athenian skyline.
The façade is based on a game of regular geometric shapes: the architecture studio has conceived a sort of alternating "grid" of opaque and transparent sections, obtained by alternating wood, dark plaster and large glass surfaces instead of masonry, allowing the communication between indoor and outdoor, to increase the osmotic conception of the entire project.
The same wooden structure also acts as a railing and protection of the veranda; the plastered surfaces created by hand reflect the key colours and materials of the interiors and are perfectly in harmony with the surrounding landscape.
A combination of travertine, marble and wood characterize the most distinctive elements of the furniture, such as the washbasins in the bathroom, designed and custom made for the project. The choice of taps enhances even more the elegance and the personality of the project.
Diametro35 by Ritmonio, a timeless icon, defines the most important spaces in homes - bathroom and kitchen - underlining their strong and refined style.
Simple geometries and precious finishes, with a great visual impact. Once again, Ritmonio proves to be the ideal partner in cutting-edge design, where it is essential to dispose of customizable solutions, able to fit into a valuable context like this and enriching it, focusing on well-being.
