What I can see

The residence of the Jewish couple Alberto and Alegra Ergas is an eclectic and perfectly symmetrical building, both in vertical and in its horizontal zones. Typical is the curved, angular tip, which is crowned with a dome and skylights.

What I can't see

After the fire of 1917, the state provided important facilities for reconstruction in the burnt zone. At that time and until the interwar period, many luxurious mansions were built, including the Alegra Ergas. The permitted building height was up to 5 floors. These buildings were commonly constructed by families who could not afford to build all five stores and instead added domes or balconies. This architectural phenomenon can be observed especially on Venizelou Street, where full coverage of the height was mandatory.
