Gallery Kalfayan is a small exhibition space at Kolonaki, in the center of Athens, on the ground floor of an existing building.

The glass façade of the existing building was replaced with translucent U-glass in order to give the necessary privacy for the art exhibitions and transform the gallery into a light box. The entrance opens up to the street with big, pivot doors-panels, inviting visitors inside.Extra wall space was created with movable panels made of metal and gypsum board.
