Cycladic arts defining characteristics, abstraction and harmony, also characterize the Cycladic Caf, recently renovated by Kois Architects. The atriums rich vegetation creates the sense of a secret oasis situated in the very center of the city, while the lighting design by Eleftheria Deko complements the natural sunlight that comes through the entrances floating faade-sculpture, during the day.
