A minimally composed residential complex, Prigkipos Petrou is an elegant and refined addition to the center of Glyfada. Arranged as a series of horizontal and vertical volumes, the visual organization of the massing emphasizes the form of each residence and its terrace against the vertical axis. The orchestration of the six-storey building is completed by the elegance of the alternating material accents, the purity of the white stucco and the richness and depth of black stone and glass. The latter is presented across the stairwell and light chimney on the eastern facade, a surface that reflects the architecture back onto itself at night.
The strict geometry of the architectural composition is broken only by a living wall on the south-eastern corner, giving sculptural depth and a natural accent to the design. Thin aluminium panels, covered with a wood ‘effect’, replicate the horizontal volumes of the facade but presented in a staccato rhythm, with the climbing plants adding a green vibrancy to the spatial arrangement. The interior programme follows the minimalist aesthetic of the exterior, presenting a palette of wooden flooring, surfaces and integrated details, mixed with the soft grey tones of polished concrete walls. On each floor, the open-plan living areas lead onto terraces with suspended infinity pools and views of the city and coastline beyond.
The residences are arranged as a ground-floor duplex with a double-height living areas, twin three bedroom apartments, and a four-bedroom penthouse duplex, with private sky garden and cantilevered wooden screenset at an angle to the arrangement below. The terraces on each floor extend towards the south-west corner of the site, maximizing the space available to create generous external areas across two full sides of each apartment.
