This apartment, located in Kastri, Attica, Greece, is as dark and masculine as can be! Dimitris Karampatakis of K-Studio and Dimitris Tsigos of TDC designed this place according to the needs and the lifestyle of its owner; a single man. And I must say this man has a really peculiar taste!

The place is divided by a metal partition with a gothic motif. An aerodynamic sculptural form undulates within the living room and the kitchen; this black glossy form rises to act as a coffee table and lowers to become one with the floor and ascends again to create a kitchen island and/or bar.

Please, take a look an tell me if you think this place is Cool or Fool.

 

Black

Could you live with all this black furniture and metal walls?

I See Light

The light at the end of the tunnel.

Kitchen? Really?

It’s hard to believe there’s a functional kitchen behind these cabinet doors. The island was inspired by race car aerodynamics.

Dining Room

I think I’d feel a bit dizzy in this place!

Light

The chandelier had to be black, of course.

Rooms

The common area of the apartment.

Reflections

Shiny closet.

Bedroom

I guess even the man that lives here needs a break from all that black. His bedroom is surrounded by dark walnut wood.

Two in One

The private area of the apartment consists of the bedroom and an office.

Chair

This space feels very minimalist but I really like that chair.

Like Magic

This is so interesting! Take a look at the picture before this one and take another look at the photo above. See anything different? A sliding partition opens to unite the bedroom area with the bathtub; five glass panels glide in an automated manner within the room drawing along strings of clothing. Clever, huh?

Now, what do you think of this flat? Many interesting and odd choices and some very clever. But overall, is it Cool or Fool?

I’m wishing a much lighter and brighter weekend to you. I hope you have lots of fun and have some time to relax!

* “Cool or Fool” happens every Friday. I’ve started this section where I post “different” and controversial things that I know some of you will love and others will not. The point is to tell us what you really think, regardless of anything. It’s a space where you speak your mind and analyze what you see. Have fun with it and laugh along the way!

    I wonder how this person makes his living. Perhaps he lives surrounded by colour all day. There isn’t any artwork, no pops of colour. Love the shirt racks in the bedroom though, cool idea.
    Have a great weekend.

    wow! those 1st few images totally hurt my eyes to look at it. I do like the all wood room-boy I bet that was expensive though!
    Have a great weekend!!

    For me a fool. Way too dark, moody and actually depressing. Unless he is a vampire or always brooding, then maybe its a perfect fit:) I am all for dark and drama but when used with lighter touches to offset the dark…this is too much of a good thing for me personally. But as I always say beauty truly is in the eyes of the beholder!

    How neat the little surprises are with the coffee table/bar and closet! I love sparse, so this is “cool” for me. I would go for a different wall design in the living room, but I don’t dislike it. Also, maybe it’s super soundproof which is great. It might be relaxing? or depressing but I don’t hate it. Love the bedroom/office.

  6. SizzleandZoom said,

    The dining room is very interesting. The dark wood floors are beautiful. But……. it is way too dark for me. I’ll have to pass but call it fool I wouldn’t go that far.

  7. Nichole@40daysof said,

    I’m very surprised to see a woman in the picture. Definitely not for me.

    Have a great weekend!

  8. Sheila Zeller said,

    Oh yikes… now I like my black, but this one is a little too dark for me – I kept wanting to brighten up my computer screen so I could see the rooms!

    I hope you have a fantastic weekend at the cottage Luciane. It sounds like the perfect way to spend Labour Day weekend, especially when it’s complete with fresh lobster. Mmmmmmm 🙂

    It would make a great club or bar, but it would be hard to live in. He must travel a lot. Or perhaps he is on anti depressants. I would be if i lived there.

    Olá Luciane! Como a maioria dos comentários também achei os ambientes muito escuros, dá “deprê”! Na minha opinião, eu encheria de flores coloridas e quadros do Romero Brito… muita alegria!
    Aliás, você já viu os quadros do Romero Brito, é um pintor brasileiro muito famoso, reside nos EUA e até a Madonna já comprou os quadros dele, são obras coloridas, alegres e contemporâneas.
    Voltando ao post de hoje: não gostei da ausência de cores e luz, mas AMEI a madeira do quarto, amo madeira, dá uma sensação de aconchego, no entanto poderia ser uma madeira raspada (não sei se tecnicamente fala raspada) mas seria basicamente lixada e assim traria ao ambiente mais luz/claridade e por fim, daria ao quarto um ar rústico.
    Excelente final de semana, relaxar é preciso!

    Eeerie! All I can think is that a real creepy weirdo must live here. Brooding and OCD. Intolerant of other people. If not a vampire, maybe a rapist/murderer. If I went into his apartment with him I’d flee as quickly as possible.

  12. Jano said,

    Fool – I don’t care for dark decor that lends itself to growing mushrooms as a hobby. Maybe the joke’s on me, and the owner made the money to afford the lovely hardwood by selling his homegrown mushrooms.

  13. Monique said,

    Do guests get greeted with lanterns at the front door?

  14. PriscilaPetersDecor said,

    Hello my friend,

    Hope you’re having a lovely weekend.

    This home is not too bad, but too dark for me.

  15. Sherri @ Inside Out Design said,

    Fascinating from a psychological point of view and definitely a little too “neat” even for me! I don’t ‘get’ that first room – sooo gloomy, but the wood in the other areas is gorgeous and I too LOVE that chair!

  16. Stacy said,

    It would make a good set for a vampire movie. Haha…hope the owner loves it though!

    Love, Kristin

    Seems sleek and expensive but kind of depressing.
