NEVER TOO SMALL Multigenerational Basement Apartment Athens – 55sqm/592sqft

Skip the waitlist and invest in blue-chip art for the very first time by signing up for Masterworks:

In Ilioupoli, a quiet, residential district south of Athens in Greece, Point Supreme Architects were tasked with converting a cold basement storage space into a functional studio apartment. Situated on the bottom floor of a multigenerational building, Ilioupoli apartment is intended as a future home for the family’s younger children, keeping the family together for longer while allowing them their own spaces. Previously an entirely open concrete room, the architects divided the space by extending the existing enclosed toilet into a full bathroom, adding an entryway partition screen and planter, as well as curtained sliding glass doors to enclose the bedroom. The home is further divided by colour, with the kitchen featuring a deep maroon laminate, a full size fridge as well as a custom island bench that opens on all four sides for storage. A contrasting bold blue bathroom is visible from the kitchen through a window in the wall between the two rooms that also allows for the flow of light. Division through flexible partitions, colour and materials creates a space that feels larger and more varied than it is, ensuring even basement storage can become a comfortable home.

  1. I would have had a custom made L shape sofa that pulls into a bed for over night guests. Plus added a chair in the closet space area

  2. I really love this one. Particularly the cork board wall, and the planter partition. The whole feels very warm and inviting.

  3. Very beautiful and great reinvention of the space. They created different spaces but still maintained an open feeling. Kudos to the designers/tenants.

  4. Instead of two hard backed chairs, I'd put in two overstuffed chairs, or a small sofa. The chairs they put in there look like dining room chairs.

  5. I love the the bathroom and kitchen!!! So colorful. I really hate drab looking homes. Great job!

  6. I just love this appartement ! Crazy about the thin metal bookshelves ervywhere and the colours so well used to structure space . Could live here (but would switch those really elegant chairs for some cosy sofa when watching a film…)

  7. Τέλεια! Πρώτη φορά βλέπω ελληνικό στοιχείο σε αυτό το κανάλι!!

  8. Absolutely gorgeous apartment <3 The only thing I'd change is to put a comfortable sofa instead of those uncomfortable looking chairs (just my opinion and preference)..I'd get a numb bottom sitting on those…

  9. I liked the eclectic and rustic style of the apartment as well as the light shining through. For me personally, I would struggle with not having a true living room. Having two simple chairs like that with a small coffee table felt like a waiting room and not a place where one could entertain. At almost 600 square feet and almost a perfect square I feel like more could've been done with the space. But perhaps this is what the client wanted.

  10. I can feel the good vibes of this project. Its sober, intelligent and secure.

  11. I love the wooden partitions and the layout. It feels spacious and homey. And even though I couldn't live with a red kitchen, I appreciate the use of color. The bedroom looks so cozy too. Well done!
