Emerald Terraces. An innovatively stylish development of nine apartments. three townhouses, and four penthouses, close to the sea in the prime Athens suburb of Glyfada. A visually refined modern complex created by renowned Greek architects ISV, which expresses their distinctive blend of functionality and human aesthetic. Emerald Terraces offers a definitive contemporary setting for the sophisticated modern lifestyle, and the need to balance work and home, pressure and leisure, activity and tranquillity. The developers, Emerald Developments SA., belong to the long-established and highly successful Photos Photiades Group of Cyprus.
Cool, clean design in an exclusive neighbourhood.
The residences are split between two buildings united by integrity of design: the one long and low of classical elegance and austerity the other in contrast, tending to the cube, more playful. One building stands slightly higher than the other and further forward, the alignment creating a subtle interplay and balance, which is counterpointed by ingenuity in the lines of construction. The use of glass balustrades creates a sense of lightness and transparency. allowing enjoyment of the views from within the building. Tinted glass windows suggest coolness and depth, privacy and intimacy. The principal balconies of all residences are at the front of the buildings and face south, towards the sea. Interior hardwood flooring extends onto the balconies so that living space merges effortlessly with the natural environment.
As a suburb of Athens, Glyfada is among the most desirable, enjoying all the sophistication of the modern capital city – the shops, the restaurants and nightspots – but without the oppression of crowded and polluted streets.
Glyfada is alive, a fresh place by the sea, well-planned, with wide, tree-lined streets. It is spacious, an aspirational place to live.
The ancients recognized the area’s special gifts. Today’s Athenians know it for its welcoming beaches, its four marinas – one of which is home to a small fishing fleet that lands a daily catch – and its excellent sports and recreation facilities, including the superb Donald Harradine-designed Glyfada Golf Course.
Benefitting from recent enhancements in transport, Glyfada is now one of the best-connected suburbs of the city. Numerous bus routes and the new tram service head in all directions, with frequent sen/ices to central Athens, Piraeus and the airport.
