ENTRANCE AND STAIRCASE:
As you enter, the first
thing that catches the attention is the abundance of light, a sense
of euphoria and well-being created by the many glass panels, letting
the view of a green garden (on the ground floor) or trees, or the
Attica blue sky and Chalandri's suburb houses, as well as the tiled
roof of a traditional house from the 1930's.
FLOOR STUDIO/AUDITORIUM/LECTURE HALL/THEATRE:
The ground floor studio/theatre
is 75 sq.m, with a ceiling 5 m high. Its walls are painted in
deep blue, pleasingly contrasting the colour of the cork on the
sound enhancement panels which open in the case of concerts.
Sound design has been made and there are, both
on the walls and on the ceiling, insulating elements for the right
absorption and diffusion of sound. This can be used as a studio for
lessons and workshops, concert auditorium and theatre.
It is ideal for dance, with its special "sandwiched" floor
with rubber shock-absorbers.Two of the four walls have very big French
windows with double insulating glass, covered with thick blue velvet
curtains. On the third wall (towards Tripoleos street) there are
windows with opaque glass, which can be covered with blinds. There
is a professional aeration system which can clear the room in a few
minutes, the doors are metallic and fireproof. There is a sound console
and CD player, and professional theatrical lights. It is easily accessible
for people on wheelchairs, thanks to a special ramp on the sidewalk.
On the first floor,
lilac and orange walls for the lounge/foyer and office area, as well
as a table for refreshments, a fridge and the toilets.
On the second floor there
is the second studio, of
50 sq.m., painted in light creamish orange, with a floor of polished
wooden boards. Two of the four walls are glass French Windows with
a beautiful view and rollers to keep off the light if needed. The
third wall is covered with a mirror, but in case of meditation classes,
when the mirror is not needed, it can be covered by Oriental style
screens. This studio also has air-conditioning, and a large covered
This studio,measuring 35 sq.m., is a pleasant
contemporary studio in deep red and light yellow, with very sophisticated
lighting options, wooden floor and a whole mirrored wall - there
are curtains, however, to cover the mirror if desired. It is ideal
for whatever is noisy (as flamenco or drums lessons) or, on the
contrary, for whatever needs quiet, such as yoga, meditation or
alternative methods. The surrounding area, as well as the stairs
leading down to the studio, have an oriental flavour, with their
deep colours, plush carpeting, Indian and Tibetan miniatures gracing
the walls, the Indonesian masks and the jasmine scent from the
ψεκαστήρια αιθέριου ελαίου.
