TZAFERI 16 / BOUTIQUE OFFICE
Next to the Benaki Museum on Piraeus Street, an old cosmetics factory transformed into a boutique office space. TZAFERI 16 is an environment to live and work. Cement columns, massive factory–type beams, a circular hole through all the floors that provides an uninterrupted view of the top floor and visible electromechanical installations are the basic elements of the space. A combination of industrial design with luxury. The smooth, shining transparent surface of the glass softens the rough, matte, impermeable mass of the concrete. Details of black marble and corian rival with bare metallic pipes and visible cables. Emblematic furniture designed by great architects infused with the aura of their creators awaits the visitor.
That is why it brings the outdoors indoors: A real olive tree, planted in the “Olive Tree Square” inside brings the Mediterranean landscape to urban everyday life. And as a stroll in the street nicely ends with a stop to a Café, the same thing happens inside TZAFERI 16.
In TZAFERI 16 the feeling of childhood not gets lost. The table soccer game, the basketball hoop, the billiard table are an irresistible invitation to play. The bicycles at the entrance are an enticement for a quick exit and ride in the neighborhood. The city is trying to enter into the space. An inviting Café is waiting for striking up acquaintances and meetings as well as enjoying food and relaxation. Also, there is a penthouse, a fascinating space that is very much like an apartment in the top roof.
