The authentic culture of Piraeus, Greece enriches the eloquent details of the “Grand Dame” home by ASK Architects. Co-founded by Stella Konstantinidis, the team designed this four-story building that kept the style of its original structure while embracing some new, chic features to comfort a family of four. The interior walls were destroyed to create a more open space of sliding doors and walls. An outdoor courtyard echoes the history of what once was in this classic 19th century home. A regal wooden staircase enchants occupants with its intense dark brown color.
