Serifos is an island of the Aegean Sea that belongs to the Cyclades. The capital of the island is Chora which is built at an altitude of 200 meters. It is considered a typical medieval fortified settlement built amphitheatrically on the rocky bay of Livadi (the port of the island), in order to protect it from the raids of pirates. The settlement of Chora of Serifos remains almost unchanged. At this point an Architectural Survey of the building was carried out in a traditional ground-floor house followed by a Restoration Proposal and addition to the floor in order to create a cottage with modern features and views of the Aegean Sea.
