What I can see

It is a building of eclectic architecture, with three levels and a courtyard. The main facades are symmetrical, it has neoclassical influences and repeated morphological elements. There are also false pilasters ending in capitals of Corinthian order, successive frames, cornice on the roof, drops, wavy patterns, elaborate cobbles and traditional Macedonian elements, such as sachnisia (enclosed balconies).

What I can't see

It is quite possible that it was designed by Vitaliano Poselli. It belonged to the last Turkish governor of the city, Abdulrahman Yazi Pasha of Suleiman. Later (1928), it was bought by the furniture dealer Stavros Nottaridis and then, it was inherited by the psychiatrist Alexandros Karipis. The building has 7 rooms, 2 reception areas and the interior painting consists of 2 layers, with the second having art nouveau influences and depicting plant themes, spirals and curved shapes. The roof paintings are also of great artistic value.
