Psychas moved from Athens to the Coast of Santorini in 1984, and he discovered a former warehouse for a pumice mine, a 1860 building had been abandoned for decades, much of the structure was under water.

Together with 20 local artisans, he rebuilt the submerged foundation and reconstructed the façade, the renovation lasted four years.
