Renovation of a 1960’s house – an immigrants’ folk house in downtown Athens – transformed to a home rental by maintaining and pointing out the paneling, the coatings, the framings and its extrovert character through the use of furniture of that period and on which it has been applied restoration techniques, patina and collage in order to highlight those times through a more contemporary, fresh viewpoint.
The decoration is of mid-century modern style with original restored furniture of that time, along with elements of contemporary design of the 1950s.
