What I can see

It is one of the first examples of buildings whose architecture is distinguished from neoclassicism, although the neoclassical principle of base- main body- crowning is evident. It is of neo-baroque order and Beaux-Arts principles are also evident (e.g. rich and expressive style, intense decoration), as the architect Alexandros Nikoloudis was a graduate of the Ecoles des Beaux-Arts. Its openings are also divided into three vertical axes and the entrance on Ipirou Street is imposing. The most obvious element of the Neo-Baroque order is the curved corner in the form of a projecting niche. On the ground floor, however, there is an incased counter-recessed niche, as opposed to the first floor, which maintains the projecting curvature. The building consists of a basement, an elevated ground floor and a floor. It has an impressive parapet and is considered a building with remarkable plasticity. The single off-white colour of the facades makes the composition more coherent.

What I can't see

The building was owned by the industrialist Gerasimos Livieratos. Its corner was crowned with an elaborate cartouche, which was destroyed in the earthquake of 1981. The spaces are developed around a central hall, the imposing staircase stands out and the bedrooms are located on the first floor.
