What I can see

This building is considered an excellent example of eclecticism, which is an architectural order that is not found in Athenian buildings of the 19th and early 20th centuries as often as neoclassicism. It consists of a ground floor, two floors and a penthouse. Stores are housed on the ground floor. Most openings on the floors are in pairs, except those that emphasize vertical axes. All the openings have elaborate decoration and some of them have balconies.

What I can't see

It was property of Thomas Kavakos, later inherited by his relatives and the “Merciful Company” (company that managed the Poor House) and then it came under the ownership of various families (Charitos, Triantafyllidis, Troupakis).
