SUVLAKI, London

With an understated colour scheme of inky blues and fluted stone columns inside and an exterior covered in graffiti, new Athenian eatery Suvlaki represents modern Greek dining and is a far cry from the traditional taverna. ‘Gone are the days of bouzouki dancing and plate smashing,’ says London-based Greek interior designer Afroditi Krassa, who worked on the project. ‘Greece is currently presenting itself as one of the creative powerhouses of Europe and our interior design studio is picking up on this energy: the project is raw, witty and idiosyncratic.’ The atmosphere is laid-back, buzzy and welcoming. 21 Bateman St, London W1 (suvlaki.co.uk). source : Elle Decoration UK

Poetic City Rooftop Hideaway in Athens

Architects Panos Dragonas and Varvara Christopoulou believe there is no longer anywhere remote enough to build a wilderness hideaway, so have instead proposed a cabin raised above the Athens rooftops.

This prompted the Greek architects to develop a new structure that allows the contemporary city dweller to escape a taxing daily routine without venturing into the wilderness.

Their proposal, named Detached, comprises a small cabin of just nine square metres. It takes the form of a typical wooden shed, but is also elevated above the city’s rooftop landscape on four slender columns.

Greek firm 314 Architecture Atudio completed the design for H3 House, a futuristic residence suspended on pillars, which seems to hover over the blue waters of the neighboring swimming pool. The detached building has a total area of 300 square meters and was constructed on a land of 7000 suqare meters in the outskirts of Athens, Greece. If the shape of this project inspires that of a boat, it is no coincidence: the architects took the challenge of building a home to reflect the owner’s passion for yachts
