Armonia Apartments

This minimal apartments project located in Athens, Greece and completed in 2017, is designed by renowned architect John Pawson, a star of minimalist architectural design.

Observed from the pine-fringed bay, Armonia is designed to read as a graphically simple composition of slender white horizontal lines, framing full-height glass and bronze finished elements that quietly animate the elevations with rhythm and pattern. The goal of the design was to create a series of apartments where the sense of place is strong and expressed in a series of intimate relationships with the sea, the mountains, the surrounding gardens and the brilliance of the Aegean light.

I love the simplicity and elegance of this project. The strength of the discrete building is perfectly integrated with the surroundings for an architectural build in harmony with nature.
