House in Piraeus

At the moment I´m on Easter holiday in beautiful France, but I just had to post this wonderful home in Piraeus, Greece. The 310 sqm neoclassical private residence was originally built for the French Councilor. In 2007 ASKarchitects co-founded by the Greek architect and Stella Konstantinidis, were asked to renovate the existing landmark while also introducing an new extension with a penthouse opening up the green roof. I love how the house is a mix of old and modern, and how the original architectural elements are enhanced by the renovation. The mixing of different floors, and the drops of color combined with white and grays really makes it charming and fun.
