The 10AM Lofts space blossomed in the mind of designer Eva Papadaki five years ago, when she came across this 1970s industrial building for sale in the trendy Gazi district of Athens. Her idea? To follow the effervescence of the neighborhood and create a place for sharing, conducive to creation.
Surrounded by the Barcelona studio Andrew Trotter and the Greek architecture studio Gavalas – Ioannidou, the founder acquired the building and transformed the place into a real home. A haven of peace and quiet. Photo studio, filming location, event space, offices. The six floors of the building are thus imagined differently to welcome all kinds of creative people and their practices. While keeping the original industrial elements, the trio tried to create three distinct volumes by playing with the composition of the space and a decoration mixing design and antique pieces. The two lower floors were designed to be raw and clear, bathed in a shaft of light that plays with materials such as concrete and terrazzo floors. The first space is multi-functional, with a large kitchen that can be used for events or offices, whole or divided.
As for the two levels above, they are presented as inhabited apartments with minimalist decoration. Bright, these lofts, where the concrete is revealed by warm colors, are perfectly suited to photographic needs and offer a fresh view of the Greek capital. 10AM Lofts is a place that calls for creation, punctuated by the passage of creative people and the continuous movement of the Gazi district.
