The building complex in question used to house the Tsaousoglou Office Furniture Factory. The premises came under the control of the National Bank of Greece, which made some of the site available for the 2006 Athens Festival. The architecture is typical of 1970s industrial buildings. The Tsaousoglou site consists of four large buildings/warehouses, all of which have now been given listed status by order of the Ministry of Culture.
Peiraios Street, the main thoroughfare and lifeline of this former industrial area, is fast becoming one of the major fronts of development in the city, and today boasts a range of cultural venues.
