What I can see

This eclectic building with neo-baroque style has towers with trapezoidal scaly crowning, 3 facades, a ground floor, and 3 upper floors. The towers at the corners underline the boundaries of the building block. It has morphological borrowings from French classicism and its decoration is rich, with influences of French Rococo.


What I can't see

The building was owned by Mois Gategno, Jacob Isaac Florentin and Jacob Joseph Florentin. Its rectangular floor plan is organized around the main large hall, and the use of glass on the floors allows light to flow throughout all floors. In 1931, the first Loumidis coffee grinder store in the city was located here, while the National Bank has also been a tenant. Over time, it has been used for commercial purposes and offices.
