Askli­p­i­ou –

New liv­ing
in the mid­dle of the city

Askli­p­i­ou 80 is in the urban core of Athens in the vibrant neigh­bor­hood of Neapoli, Exarcheia. The build­ing was ini­tial­ly built for indus­tri­al use, it was a printshop. It has since been bought by Dia­mona Greece (“DG”) and has been repur­posed for res­i­den­tial use, incor­po­rat­ing pre­vi­ous ele­ments of the build­ing into a mod­ern design.

The new­ly ren­o­vat­ed, high ener­gy effi­cient build­ing of 7 sto­ries is locat­ed on the cor­ner of Askli­p­i­ou and Tsimis­ki street, with facades fac­ing on both streets. In the back of the build­ing there is an inte­ri­or court­yard that pro­vides nat­ur­al light to all apart­ments. The set­back of the build­ing gave DG the oppor­tu­ni­ty to design a gar­den and com­mu­nal sit­ting area on the north­west­ern façade where the main entrance of the build­ing is locat­ed. On the oth­er façade exists a street arcade with high ceil­ing, where the entrance to DG’s main office is locat­ed. The build­ing on the fourth floor starts to set­back, there is a built-in planter on the whole length of the build­ing with plant­ed olive trees and low grass shrubs 
The build­ing has 20 ful­ly fur­nished apart­ments that fol­low a mod­ern aes­thet­ic design, ful­ly ergonom­ic kitchen, com­fort­able fur­ni­ture, alu­minum ther­mal insu­lat­ed slid­ing win­dows and bal­cony doors. The build­ing offers com­mon areas that can be accessed by all ten­ants, either the roof top with sit­ting and plants for relax­ing stay or the lounge room with music, tv, com­fort­able sit­ting and games. 
The front entrance gar­den pro­vides a wel­com­ing feel­ing with Mediter­ranean plants rang­ing from cit­rus trees, herbs, shrubs, and climber plants. Adja­cent to the gar­den there is a court with a com­fy sit­ting area. As you enter the lob­by of the build­ing with its mir­rored wall and veneer fin­ish­es you are guid­ed to the com­mon areas in base­ment of the build­ing where there are laun­dry facil­i­ty with wash­ers and dry­ers and an area des­ig­nat­ed as a lounge room with soft green pas­tel col­ors, large com­fy sofas and mar­ble bistro tables that pro­vide a relax­ing area to meet oth­er ten­ants or friends. Pro­vid­ed in the lounge is an assort­ment of board games, video game con­sole and a foos­ball table and a cof­fee sta­tion. On the roof of the build­ing there is a com­mon ter­race gar­den with climber plants and small trees. The roof is fur­nished with built in bench­es and loose arm­chairs with the whole area cov­ered in net, which allows a nice breeze but pro­vid­ing enough shade to sit at any time of the day.
