Passer Domesticus is a two storey 1924 historical building designed to be in Thessaloniki center area. A unique compact living space for short term habitation and city break experiences. Originally a tradesman’s fabrics shop and later a fishing accessories store, Passer Domesticus is dedicated to modern urban living, along with experiencing much of its past era atmosphere.
The aim of the project is to enable people live into a street level shop environment, and feel the city’s vibe from a closer, warmer and more personal perspective, an experience found in small scale societies, Greek villages and city neighbourhoods of the past.
Passer Domesticus aims in the near future to additionally offer private – in place – experiences to its guests, such as exclusive dinners, private small music concerts, small exhibitions hosting and guided historic retrospectives.

Passer Domesticus’ s building belongs to the “new-byzantine” typology of Thessaloniki, according to historians, with its characteristic first floor rounded windows and small columns lying next to the significant historical building of “Bedesten”, the Ottoman fabrics and gold market of the city.
Natural tones, vintage elements kept from the previous use, built-in furniture, composed with a sculptural intention and a playful feeling describes the interior’s design.
