Using the façade as a canvas, the architects replaced the original modular grid with three different materials to distinguish the interior spaces. Private areas are covered in opaque panels of marble – a snapshot of the landscape imprinted onto the building.
As the only coherent residential block downtown, ONE ATHENS embodies Doxiadis’ vision of an idealised metropolis, or Entopia, that would provide for small communities within big cities. In this spirit, the entire ground floor is dedicated to communal spaces and amenities leading off the marble-clad atrium.
Since individuality is as important as a sense of community, each of the 26 apartments is unique. Thanks to its grand scale, ONE ATHENS can accommodate a variety of homes to suit different lifestyles: apartments, duplexes, penthouses, and townhouses. Wherever possible, spaces are open-plan to make the most of the show-stopping views in every direction.
