Ancient Apartment

Ancient apartment in the old town of Corfu

An apartment full of surprises.
A building in a delicate state of static and residential decay with high complexity of the floors above.
The aim of the project was to respect the historical identity of this space developed on two levels through the materials and construction methods, trying to recover a new functionality and comfort of the living space.
An existing underground space dug into the rock on which the foundations of the whole old city rest, permeates a magical veil over this very complex space to be rebuilt… given its multifaceted historical identity.
