Acropolis View in Athens by Minas Kosmidis

Greek architect Minas Kosmidis creates a functional house with an incredibly unique view from the magical atmosphere of the Acropolis whilst bringing the Ancient city to life within its walls. The area is Thisio in Athens, Greece.

Kosmidis literally turned the house upside down by positioning the bedrooms on the ground floor in order to maximise the property’s space and potential for scenery. This house has unique features, like the bold and striking walnut staircase displaying the highest quality of craftsmanship and has been designed to last.

As the ground floor is lit only through the two windows that overlook the street, walls and doors were removed and replaced with big movable wooden panels complete with walnut finishes. Further evidence of practicality merging with aesthetics is evident in how the spaces flow into each other, providing highly functional as well as sumptuous and unique surroundings.

The subtle use of accent colours and bold lines, as is most prominently seen in the metalwork throughout, compliments the simplicity and beauty of the design and materials used. The use of natural colours such as beige on the walls and materials such as walnut and marble on the floors adds warmth to an overall simple and monochromatic scheme.

The final result is a practical home and also super stylish thus ticking all the right boxes.
