Athenstudio is an architecture series with the aim to reveal an hidden face of the Greek capital through a socio-urban investigation: the high class brothels.
Greece is in fact one of the few European countries that, regarding prostitution, follows a regulatory model: here the brothels are legally registered and offer services for all kind of clients.
Those of the highest level are characterized by a more kind attitude of the girls and they are housed in discrete buildings.
These brothels are recognizable by a pink neon sign with the word "Studio" placed at the front door.
