It’s a summer apartment with two bedrooms, a spacious living area and a big terrace which takes full advantage of the views. The designers used a series of materials such as granite, timber, stone and metal which give out a raw vibe but are balanced out by the soft fabrics and neutral colors which results in a harmonious interior decor with lots of character.

The designers went for a contemporary look which suggests quiet opulence, wanting to give the apartment a sophisticated aesthetic without going overboard with the finishes, colors or ornamentation. The artwork featured throughout the apartment is done by local artists, adding an ethnic vibe to the decor. Of course, the real focal points of the entire apartment are the panoramic views and the designers made sure to not overpower them in any way but rather to frame and enhance them.
