The Transparent Apartment

Urban Soul Project as Architects

This apartment is located on a listed building dated from the 30’s in downtown Thessaloniki.


The unique typology of its layout allows for a circulation around its core, through all spaces and a sheltered balcony at the back.


All spaces are open to the front view, unified in a square large room, where living and dining room and master bedroom are consecutive. The master wc is located centrally and open through a glass curved wall to the front view and light. A Greek green marble is the surface on which seats the sink, faucet, it enters the shower and becomes the floor.


Materials used are the mixed green, black and light green terrazzo tile, the green marble also found in the terrazzo tile, oak wood floors, white woven reed incorporated in laquer doors and closets. Brass details in doorknobs, light fixtures and details on the floor.
