Located in the center of the medieval old town of Rhodes, this historic town house interior was restored, by architect Petros Tsoukalas (PTA- Design Research Studio), aiming to uncover the original historic features of the property and celebrate its authentic character.
It was built in the 12th – 13th century and is located directly opposite the ancient Byzantine ruins on Pythagora str.. The architecture of the building is a mix of a Hellenistic, Byzantine, Medieval and Ottoman style.
The original stone walls were plastered and all the internal arched medieval windows and stone archways were blocked and infilled. The inspiration behind this project was to uncover and celebrate as much as possible the original features of this historic house.
Original features such as the stone fire places, decorative woodwork and arched openings were uncovered and reinstated. The original medieval archway defines the entrance to the property, through a beautiful stonepaved courtyard with an external stone staircase leading to the first floor town house.
