House in Gravari Street
The restoration of the facades of a historic neoclassical house on one of the main streets in Parikia town. This was the third restoration project on the same street and proved to be a challenging and interesting undertaking. The aim of the project was to restore the house to its former charm, as it was originally built by a former tobacco producer who used to often host the noble visitors of the island.
To achieve this, we utilized historic plaster, specifically pozzolanic plaster commonly used in archaeological restorations. Samples were created to ensure that the colors were as close as possible to the original ones used in 1885. The decorative cornices and pilasters were replicated in exact detail, with unique molds created for each one.
The restoration was a meticulous and careful process, carried out with the utmost respect for the history and personality of the building. The final result was a beautifully restored house that showcased its original beauty and provided a fresh look to the entire neighborhood.
