A new house built on a sloped plot of land in the north-eastern suburbs of Athens is a playful response to the classic Rubik’s Space Architects.
Building the house with blocks of colour, Rubuk’s Space Architects added a whole new dimension to a tall family house on a narrow plot.
Inspired by the adventurous nature of her client, a young family man whose favourite film is Star Wars, Kipseli’s principal Kirki Mariolopoulou designed a colourful spaceship that was fun, yet also functional.
The house, with its eccentrically soaring atrium and expansive four-storey facade, provides the perfect canvas for an abundant use of an intense orange colour scheme, flooding a tropical warmth from the front door to the roof terrace.
Pops of bright blue furniture, shiny red bathroom tiles and green and yellow walls in the bedrooms define moods and spark conversations throughout the home.
Using such vivid colours on this scale was a first for Mariolopoulou: ‘For me every new housing project is a new relationship.
As we all know, every new relationship comes along with its unique experiences and challenges.
