This townhouse in the centre of Athens sits at the foot of Mt. Lycabettus. It is the former residence of Melina Mercouri, an internationally acclaimed actress who also acted as the first female Minister of Culture of Greece, and her husband director Jules Dassin. The townhouse was renovated and transformed into a modern functional home in the least possible intrusive way. In decorating the spaces, I have used mid-century modern décor accents as an homage to an endlessly inspiring woman and her time.
