10AM Lofts in Athens is a six-storey warehouse. The 1970s industrial building hosts an events venue, 4 apartments, and a brutalist house.
A six-storey warehouse in downtown Athens is simultaneously a multifunctional venue, 4 apartments, and a luxe brutalist house.
The Barcelona-based Studio Andrew Trotter in collaboration with the local studio Gavalas Ioannidou Architecture, Eva Papadaki, as well as a number of other designers and artists took over the renovation of this 1970s industrial building in Athens, Greece. As a result, 10AM Lofts, the building and the concept, is a rough diamond.
10AM Lofts is ‘a venue, a penthouse and four lofts in a former six-storey warehouse in downtown Athens, available for film-photo productions, events, dinners, exhibitions, residence, artistic inspiration and collaboration.’
The exceptional architecture project was designed by a collective of artists and for creativity. Creativity knows no limits, neither does the concept of 10AM Lofts. The brutalist design fuels the idea that the work is still in progress, in an ever-evolving pad.
While the multifunctional venue is split across 3 floors – the ground floor, the basement, and a mezzanine – and it can be used as one or divided into different size spaces. The space is rentable for events, exhibitions, special dinners, shootings, and other creative purposes by anyone who wants to.
To access the basement, guests descend a twisted steel staircase. While the ground floor (and the mezzanine) had walls painted white a couple of new windows to bright up the space, the basement remains dim with only a handful of pendant lamps and narrow openings in the ceiling to illuminate the area.
On the 3rd and 4th floor there are four habitable apartments. The fifth and sixth floor of the 1970s industrial building in Athens belongs to a luxe two-storey brutalist house.
THE BRUTALIST HOUSE ATOP 10AM LOFTS
An open plan, luxury, penthouse loft apartment split across the building’s 5th and 6th floors.
On the first floor, the large living-dining-kitchen area opens to a study with a large sofa that also acts as a second bedroom. A passage leads to a very special bathroom with glass on both sides, a large stand-alone bath, and a shower room, both with spectacular views.
The second floor is home to the main bedroom and a huge terrace that offers views to the Acropolis, the Lycabettus hill, and the Athens riviera.
This penthouse is a tale of two opposites; an open space, yet with a dark palette of colors. This dark palette makes the place feel cool in the summer months, sensuous with raw luxury. It turns the view into a unique art piece as well.
In the interior of the brutalist home, we find black stone flooring, dark wood cabinets, and lime-washed walls. This brutalist design language is unique for the Mediterranean interior design of Athens’ interiors.
Heavy sand-colored linen curtains, brutalist furniture such as rough-looking center tables, and vintage furniture and decorative elements add warmth to the raw concrete penthouse.
The brutalist home among the busy city of Athens is an oasis of peace.
