The listed neoclassical building, originally designed by the architect Ernst Ziller is one of the most distinguished edifices of Nafplion. The building stands in a prominent corner location, opposite the municipal library and its small but picturesque orchard garden. The brief required the refurbishment of the first floor apartment and its second floor roof top extension as the double-height open-plan ground floor -originally, a tobacco storage- has been recently refurbished and converted into a boutique shop.

During a 1930’s extension, the first floor veranda was appropriated to accommodate the wet units and mechanical installations. This intervention substantially reduced the natural lighting in the apartment and diluted the clarity of its original organization and spatial sequence. The proposed intervention aims at re-establishing this ‘principal’ element to the building by introducing a central, seemingly external space for cooking and dining. An oversized, rectangular open-able skylight is crowning the space, flooding it with natural light and framing the sky’s ever changing colours and tempers. This stands in reference to the exceptional ceiling frescoes that decorate each space of the apartment’s interconnected rooms with different motifs and colours.

Other works scheduled include the restoration of the roof, of all timber windows, doors and shutters, new floorings for the second floor, kitchen and bathrooms, new mechanical and electrical installations, stuccoing and painting.
