D. TSASIS STUDIO

MY ARCHITECTURAL STUDIO

The building that houses the studio is located within the listed Vatikiotis Market, an area of Thessaloniki which was stricken during the great 1917 fire. It is one of several adjoining two-storey buildings that make up the street fronts of the area.

 

The upper floor collapsed in the earthquake of 1978, so the building operated as a ground floor store up until its restoration and conversion into an architectural studio in the year 2000. The façade was remodelled in keeping with its original form, and a new metal frame was constructed in the interior.

 

The 1:3 proportion applied in the division of the initial façade is echoed in the division of all interior spaces. On the high-ceilinged ground floor, a transparent suspended cube-shaped loft was designed and constructed.
