Looking directly in front of Elia Luxury Suites, it is clear how much its stoic presence breaks away from the surroundings and how its visual concept is based upon absolute symmetry.

Elia Luxury Suites - Minimalist apartment in Heraklion, Greece

From the architect: Almost like a mirror-like image, both sides of the entrance act like a mime of each other. Such composition serves as the introductory elements, although unlike many minimalist projects that wear its heart on its sleeve, the inside program unfolds into something distinct from its façade.

Located in Heraklion, Grete, and designed by local studio IT’S A TRAP SPACE, the project is unapologetically brutalist—a strong statement about privacy and proudly owning up to its sculptural concrete form.

Once on the inside, the narrative turns into a very interesting relay of areas. Acting as a branching path is the main passageway, bestowed with a brighter light than its surrounding ambient, a main hub between two high volumes. Each area has the benefit of a distinct form, from high ceilings in the social/dining area, the bedrooms to the grey-walls wet areas. It is dynamic visually, but never busy, justifying its name.

The interior design aims for timeless and precise furniture, leading with muted colours as a complement to the graphite dimension that surrounds all walls. The absence of a large window brings an almost temple-like quality to the project—as a refuge—but never without a firm grip on style and expressive visuals. The Design Studio brought forward a collection of sensible and intricate concepts through a beautifully brutalist project, with tranquility guaranteed.
