This 160sqm penthouse apartment in the prestigious Voula area ideally combines the urban lifestyle with a beach attitude. The large open-plan area of the kitchen – dining – living space is blended with the dominant presence of wood, marble and atmospheric ceiling lighting. The kitchen is minimalistic and along with the central kitchen island, itcombines the everyday kitchen use with the rest of the dining area. Correspondingly, the strong continuity of the dining area with that of the living area goes on with the cabinet construction that elegantly hides all the accessories and utensils of a formal dinner but exposes architectural and decorative artifacts, creating a lounge ambience. Thecomfortable large corner sofa is positioned facing the centrally located fireplace, which is tastefully decorated with marble surfaces thus being transformed into a piece of art. The apartment’s bathroom also has a similar approach. The single-piece marble countertop and the pink golden fixtures synthesize an elegant minimalism that characterizes the apartment as a whole.
