Piraeus, the harbor, neoclassical buildings and old neighborhoods with the intense fragrance of a glorious past. In one of these neighborhoods, just a bit above the harbor, we have picked out a magnificent stone-built building of industrial aesthetics, constructed in 1911. Its history is interesting and grand, as it began as a power plant, to be later transformed into a pottery and then a soap factory, ending up being used as a simple storage space. We were fascinated by its perfectly maintained chimney - which reaches 37 meters in height, one of the highest in all of Athens and Piraeus - as well as with the beauty and the imposing feeling the stone emanates. As such, we decided without a second thought to breathe new life into this marvelous building, transforming it into a unique cultural venue for the organization of events. Combining the aesthetic values and architecture of the 19th century with contemporary aesthetics, a striking result came to surface.

The Greek wedding feast has a long history; as rich as the history of this unique stone hall in Piraeus, located just a bit above the harbor. Built in the late 1900s, when trade and industry flourished in Piraeus, it has functioned as a power plant, a ceramic factory and even a soap factory. It is a unique industrial architectural monument and is an excellent example of the history and culture of the greater Piraeus and Athens area.
