Studio Andrew Trotter, Gavalas Ioannidou Architecture and designer Eva Papadaki have given new life to an industrial building from the 1970s in the fashionable Gazi district of Athens. 

The new 10AM Lofts project is a real find for Athenian producers, stylists, photographers and organizers of luxury parties. Together with the team of architects Studio Andrew Trotter, Gavalas Ioannidou Architecture and Eva Papadaki, the founders of the project transformed a six-storey factory in the Gazi district. Now the building has a whole collection of lofts available for rent: there are four bright apartments, one spectacular penthouse and a two-level event space located on the ground and basement floors.

The leitmotif of the interior of 10AM Events Space was the brutal beauty of concrete. The architects preserved the coffered concrete ceilings, textured walls and floor, supporting the industrial theme with a large-scale partition made of glass blocks and metal built-in elements. Especially appropriate here is a twisted staircase made of Korten steel, which connects the lower, darker level with the light upper one. The abundance of rough textures and chopped shapes is softened by antique wooden furniture and textured plain textiles.

In the residential space of the 10AM Penthouse, the main violin is played by lime plaster of a complex sandy shade, which covers the walls and ceiling of the penthouse. The minimalist interior is saturated with tactile surfaces: watercolor walls, stone floors, grainy linen curtains, worn wood and wicker chair seats, ceramic vases and alabaster lamps add up to an amazing collage. The palette of the project is strictly limited to black, brown and white, but the poetic play of shades and textures decorates the space better than any color inclusions.
