Tsahakis House

Tsahakis House
(1 Vote)

Thessalonikis 11, Heraklion

This house is one of the most elegant examples of the late 'romantic' Neoclassicism. It was built in the first decade of the 20th century by the architect D. Kyriakou, probably influenced by the bilding of Stathatos at Queen Olga avenue, Athens (architect Ernst Ziller). Particularly interesting is the architecture of the sides of the building, with semi-circular cut-out towards the corner created by the roads. Remarkable are also other architectural and morphological choices: the semicircular balcony supported by Doric columns, pillars and pilasters, pediments, niches and clay ornaments make a perfect, aesthetic result.
