The Clumsies Bar in Athens: a dream of two bartending champions

By

"Micro-small" is the reaction of the chemical substance ethanol after the body chemical action after drinking a mouthful of alcohol. The brain will enter the state of excitement and make people feel dizzy in the process of metabolizing ethanol to acetic acid; but if you use the scientific method, the effect of the skin on the body is indeed contrary to the life brought by alcohol. Feelings. If you use the right amount of money to understand the wisdom of alcohol fermentation; even the freshly decaying sweet fruit also contains alcohol, then after drinking a well-designed special cocktail, you will have a mood change, excitement, and carnival, why? Not a great enjoyment in life. Athens, 8 km from the Aegean Sea, is surrounded by many famous philosophers, writers and politicians, and the famous Greek mythology is also fermented over time. This is an old town suitable for letting imagination and tasting a "slightly" and telling the story of life. Find a spiritual and emotional redemption for a boring life. On the Praxitelous Street in Athens, The Clumsies is named after the “Best Bar in the World”; the retro-aged tonality is experimental and elegant, both elegant and impulsive – when you drink into your throat Before the delicious and delicious, its wine-drinking method has a little bit of fun. Back in 2012, the two World Wine Classes Vassilis Kyritsis (2012 Greek Bartender World Champion) and Nikos Bakoulis (2011 Greek Bartender World Class Champion) met in the same bar; they shared each other Recognizing the identity of the bartender, I believe that a good bartender should not only choose an impeccable formula, but also connect the guests with drinks. After a few years of experimentation, they worked with several other partners to create The Clumsies. The Clumsies are hidden in neoclassical architecture in 1903, but far beyond the imagination of a modern gentleman's club. In the Clumsies space created by the Nine Design design team, some of the paved wooden floors and natural light of the bath are warm tones. The wall cabinets are covered with various wine glasses and drinks; each room has its own style: The old-fashioned library lamp holder, the mysterious neon cloister, the café-like comfortable seating area, the corner of the bed where people can "lie down and drink", and the old apartment in the movie, with a billiard ball. Retro home cubicle with table. For Nikos and Vassilis, the contact with alcoholic people is an important part of their work, and the fun of interaction is reflected in the design of the winemaking process. The classic list of bartending is a wooden box filled with a variety of fragrant glass mason jars, and the alcoholic can guess the desired bartending by smelling the smell. Last year, The Clumsies also developed a new order – dividing the drink into “past,” “now,” and “future.” In a wit game like a board game, alcoholics should not just drink, but also drink. Before the little brains! Reminiscent of the story of Dionysus, the god of wine in Greek mythology, He has the power of intoxication, allowing people to enjoy the carefree moments of life, but also let people fall apart from the sacred; protect the Greek agriculture, drama Culture gives the world joy and happiness. The Clumsies enjoys their enjoyment and enjoyment. The alcoholic travels through the rooms and listens to jazz swings while sipping a world-class drink. I believe the story in the bar must be beyond the slightest; perhaps for local drinkers, This is a small wine god festival in life, full of emotions and brains of a dream. The...

Light and thin like a wing, gentle as moonlight: light house in Athens

By

The romance of Paris is a drop of the quaintness of the Athens style, like the old songs of ancient Greek architecture. Located in the suburbs of Athens, Glyfada, every night, you can see the silhouette of the plant on the wall of the building, like an ancient Greek relief sculpture; this is the architectural team 314 Architecture Studio named "H102 Romance Contemporaine's architectural plan, which was hailed as "the place where the Greek rich gathered," created a romantic and innovative roof house, like a piece of white jade, adding a few French feelings to the tranquil atmosphere. An Athens apartment originally built in the 1970s, the appearance of the building team's clever hands, gradually germinated and formed by a monotonous and boring white rectangle, growing into a pair of light-colored wings. The 314 Architecture Studio team, which specializes in white geometrical and warm light, explains: "With a continuous engraving, the whole building is like a transparent body with a lot of light and shadow imprints." The wall, as well as the transparent material selection that changes with the light and shadow, makes the roof have both the ancient Greek memories and the sleek curved shape of the ancient women's gauze. The ironing is the mural poetry carefully crafted by the architectural studio, and a touch of the pair. The future of the city. The interior of the apartment was transformed into a four-story, perpetual building through romantic brushstrokes. The indoor space replaces the wall with tropical plants, constructs a private atrium, and has a second living room to allow internal and external space to circulate, achieve a good air circulation, and reduce energy waste. The second floor and above have a good view, which can be used as a formal gathering space; the top floor is equipped with slidable metal woven curtains, and the master bedroom is boldly set here. It looks like a piece of ancient Greek-style traditional draping, romantic and modern. While retaining privacy, it also frames the ups and downs of the remote Immitos Mountain and the wide blue sky of the Aegean Sea. It is like a magnificent view of the ancient Athens period. Nowadays, the Greek economy is facing difficulties. The rich areas of the capital still pursue the ultimate aesthetics without being affected. It may seem that they are somewhat out of touch, but looking at history, most of the cultural assets we see today are from the past and life. The exquisite pursuit of beauty. Perhaps the reform is not a phenomenon of "richness", but an uneven distribution of wealth and the concept of people's money. If one day people's basic wealth needs can be guaranteed, and the rich people are willing to embrace the hearts of the world, then many artists in the world can create a piece of art in the world like 314 Architecture Studio in Glyfada.

Aesthetic message. The original architectural renovation design was interpreted as a modern, modern cave. Outside the cave, the wide suites and sky bars on the terrace, the bird's-eye view of the border between the coast and the sky; the caves, arches and arches, depicting a flowing blue water on the ground, slowly extending into the watershed of the land. The wall of the blue and white meeting, the white neon tube lights up, the light blooms from the seat and the wall, depicting the outline frame of the interior space, the halo and the aperture level are scattered, and the fascinating modern streamline atmosphere is emitted.

Aegean Island Reading: Atlantis Books, Santorini

By

This may be a story that is not new. A young man is dependent on his youth and has no fear. He is taking an adventure in a foreign country and throwing time. He is only looking for a skyrocketing position. This kind of story can always attract people's hearts, perhaps because it reflects on the pace of self-improvement, or from which we are excited by the enthusiasm, there are too many or, let us glimpse from different stories, different arrangements The emotional heat that has not been cooled has gained different inspiration and touch. Craig Walzer and Oliver Wise from the United States traveled to Santorini in 2002 and found that they could not find an English book that attracted them at the local bookstore. So they had a thought in mind, why not open a bookstore here? This thought did not end in the end, but was put into practice. After a period of preparations and friends connected to each other, Atlantis Books officially opened in 2004 (originally under a castle, moved to its current location in 2005). The bookstores scattered all over the street have always supported the city's cultural atmosphere. The presence of Atlantis Books, which is full of hotels and restaurants, is even more precious. It is even rated by the Guardian writer Jeremy Mercer as one of the ten favorite bookstores in the world. . Atlantis Books organizes art and entertainment activities, food festivals, concerts, film festivals, etc., to attract people of different interests and expand the single business model of the bookstore. On the hanging wall of Santorini, the dazzling white village, the fierce sun in the afternoon is shining with glare in the building. One of the original intentions of Atlantis Books was to create a refuge for readers and writers in the most beautiful places of the Aegean Sea. Let the traveler who is soaked by the hot sun get a slumber, get into the shelter of the shadows, listen to the jazz music that is flowing to smooth the heat of the skin. The terrace facing the sea allows visitors to sit and read at will, tired of looking up and taking the blue wave in front, letting the mind rest and re-sensing the surroundings. The bookshelves in the store are all from the hands of the staff. The mottled lines of the wood overlap the hand-made traces; the bookcases are tailored and set up in response to the pattern in the house, and are full of novels, poems, short story collections and philosophical books. a corner. In addition, the terraces and low walls of the building have all become the platform for the display of books. Breaking through the restrictions of the pattern, it is just sitting in the quiet place, the vivid visual picture is pleasing to the eye, and it also stimulates the curiosity of the visitors. The store's collection covers Greek, English, Italian, Spanish, French, German and other European languages, allowing travelers from all over the world to mine their books in the closest language. A few pages of paper, several lines of words, prepared a book of humanities: philosophy, culture, history, literature, art, condensed the construction footprint of human civilization. Bookstores are their temporary habitat, waiting for a figure to stop in the crowds coming and going. The clerk is very happy to discuss the favorite books and writers with the visitors and share the enthusiasm and touch of a certain plot or text. The actual interaction is connected with the shackles between people and books. The bookstore is playing an irreplaceable intermediary role, just as books carry the epitome of human civilization, and strangers who don’t know each other briefly meet here. The corner of history extends the axis of daily life, portraying the random and random encounters at the moment. Perhaps, Santorini's face not only has a fascinating beauty, but also the imagination of the Atlantis Books to find the textual construction, lost in the island's atypical impression. With the rhythm of the blue wave of the Aegean Sea, I flipped through the pages of the book, and my thoughts floated in the text. I might have a deeper understanding of the artistic conception of the word "the sea is boundless". Atlantis Books Oia, Santorini, TK 84702, Kyklades, Greece Opening Hours: Mon-Sun/ 10:00 am-00:00...

Splendid geometric style, the lively look of the home: Athens apartment Nadja Apartment

By

One of the most favorite games to play with friends when I was young was to draw a blank sheet of paper to paint the future of my imagination. I want to paint the walls of the room in yellow, the sofa in the living room is pink, and the tiles in the toilet are blue... In fact, I didn’t particularly think about color matching, just apply all the favorite colors to my brain. When I grow up, I gradually realize that the color distribution of the original space is logical, and the color with high color and vividness can excite the spirit, and the visual eye-catching can brighten the whole space; the gray or earth tones are gentle and close, which can make people comfortable. The warm feeling can also be perfectly matched with other colors. But as we learn more, these suggestions are like a baggage, affecting our color scheme, and conservative choices are the answer that won't go wrong. However, in Athens, Greece, Point Supreme Architects, co-founded by two designers Konstantinos Pantazi and Marianna Rentzou, does not play such a conservative card. He is good at using a variety of color combinations with high saturation to create fun for the space and become a distinctive logo style. Also in Athens, built by two people, the residential project called Nadja Apartment was originally a two-story, self-contained single-storey apartment; the Point Supreme Architects team used colorful blocks as a starting point for the use of floor tiles, iron pieces, etc. The different effects of various building materials on color development and texture create a lively home space like a color collage. The upper and lower floors clearly distinguish between the public and private sectors. The family gatherings use the public domain on the first floor. The second floor is the private sector for family members. The two floors are the fresh yellow stairs in the center of the apartment. If color is the soul of the Nadja apartment, then this staircase is undoubtedly the most important backbone of the entire space. The space below the stairs is connected to the kitchen, which is different from the common closed cabinets. The hollow design not only increases the platform for cooking, but also becomes a fallen and unique triangular window that separates the living and dining space. The upper space replaces the single-sided handrail with a combination of rectangular glass windows of various sizes. The white wooden window frame balances the stairs and the left and right side partitions, and the visual weight is increased by the contrast. The transparent glass features the light to penetrate and the space is bright and spacious. Slowly go upstairs, as if the rising sun, like the pink planet floating in the universe in the dream, the large pink semi-circular wall decoration continues the staircase as the concept of the space corner; in addition to the space, it is quiet The land brings a cheerful and comfortable energy to the family owner. The children's room on the second floor continues the style of dividing the space by color, and then design according to the preferences of the owner of the room. I often feel that I am not sleepy before going to bed, but I still have to think about what I want to eat tomorrow after breakfast. It seems that every child will have a little happiness. Roaming in the interstellar, exploring the vast universe, or sailing on the unknown to the distant, these adventures should be left in the sweet dreams. The homeowner's family played a supportive and challenging role in the design of the apartment by the Point Supreme team. Thanks to these close communication and cooperation processes, Nadja became a comfortable home space that meets the needs and aesthetics of the homeowner. However, there are bold attempts in design. The interior is full of color but not messy, just like a harmonious and balanced collage of fun. Image Source: Point Supreme & yatzer.

In the small Greek town of Thessaloniki, next to the beach of Leoforos Nikis, a tavern “Otto e Mezzo” with a Mediterranean-inspired and Italian-style ambience is set up here, and the seemingly unusual two cultural fusions are installed in it. It reveals a rebellious meaning, like the conversion of day and night, giving the pub a different look. In fact, Otto e Mezzo means “81⁄2”, and people familiar with old movies will inevitably evoke some memories – the name of the store is taken from 1963 director Federico Fellini's black and white film “81⁄2”. Wooden beams, leather accents, deliberately painted walls, exposed brass tubes, from the design of the Ark4Lab architectural studio; and Fellini movies are not the only inspiration for the bistro, the walls are from the hands of local artist Eli, huge portraits Stucco - Tony Soprano is the character of the HBO album "Soprano" ten years ago, trying to reflect its traits in space - tangled but unconventional, bold thinking, detached and flamboyant. "To reflect the true nature, it is the original intention of our design," said designer George Tyrothoulakis. Everything is from the neatly chopped chopping board, the line of the line, the large sink without the painted marble, so put a large wooden board on the table; next to the custom-made brushed old canvas stitching leather meal The chair, the retro black wall brick is both a side table and a low stool. The space exudes a self-service atmosphere of "You come by yourself", so unpretentious and so casual. The spherical chandelier on the ceiling is also a guest product. Through the arbitrarily adjustable brass wire, the distance between the copper wire and the lamp is extended or shortened. A dynamic sense of rhythm, allowing the clerk to change according to the situation. A variety of industrial style elements, from leather high chairs, tiled table tops, painted murals of murals, distressed wall materials, custom-made three-dimensional floating lettering, herringbone ceilings and ground patterns.
