A family of 4 are the new residents of this house that completely meets their needs for greener and open living spaces and a playful atmosphere. The continuous space takes advantage of the inner garden that is visible from every corner of the living room, entrance and kitchen. Plants and trees are key factors that shape the family's everyday life. The wide glass front door lets the interior to expand and flow outdoor.

The core inspiration has been the love for Mediterranean nature that unfortunately is missing largely from urban life in Athens, Greece.

Natural materials are present everywhere: unprocessed marble, pebbles, old pieces of wood, earth, stones create the houses atmosphere. The spirit of the old house is also present through some parts of the old flooring material (brown marble) that are preserved and embodied with the new ones.
