Tour a Decaying Greek Mansion Turned Hip Boutique

From bead mazes and ethernet cables to walkable ceramics and "light forests", there are tons of ways to create a wicked-cool retail shop. One more sure-fire way to do it? Pack up everything and unload in a decrepit 1930s Neoclassical Greek mansion. That's exactly what Athens fashion boutique and cafe Philos did and the result is striking to say the least.

As Wallpaper reports, the store just relaunched in the building, in which a high-ceilinged central cafe branches off into smaller, sometimes dungeon-y pockets of space displaying various apparel and homeware. The brand is set to open up two more floors and the roof terrace of the property later this year.
