You can find the apartment you are going to spend your holidays at a very nice old building. The Art Deco metallic entrance of the building, together with the elevator is so charming at the first glance. The main entrance has been designed from the famous Greek Architect C. Kitsikis who raised a lot of buildings in Athens of 50s’ and 60s’ and is now considered one of the most important Greek architects of the 20th century. Many of his buildings are now considered as preserver from the Greek Government. This building, where this apartment belongs, is a simple one. Not a major project but still it has the charm of the touch from this Architect. The green metallic door with the impressive designs, together with the area of the main entrance gives the impression of a painting. Simple white lines made of plaster and cement construct a nice aesthetic result that reflects the Greek status together with the international influences from the mid-20th century trends. If I had to declare where this building belongs I wouldn’t vote for Athens… but instead to central Paris or Barcelona. The main entrance leads to the elevator and the stairs. Talking about the elevator, the mechanism is brand new (established in 2014) and works perfectly. Though we have decided not to change its character. We decided to keep it like it was when the building was raised, back in the 60s’. Its charming Art Deco design with the wooden chamber and the metallic green door (which is perforated and lets you see outside of the lift on your way to the desired floor) offers the visitor a nice experience. It takes you back to the film noir movies of 50s’ and 60s’. A sense of old times in the modern environment of the apartment. Because… behind the door, everything is modern and new.
At a 95 sq. meters area, this fully renovated and very well equipped apartment offers almost everything a visitor can demand.
