The Sarogleio Building, constructed between 1928 and 1932 at the corner of Vasilissis Sofias and Rigillis Streets, has a rather interesting history.

In 1912, architect Alexander Nikoloudis won a competition to design a judiciary building to be located on this site, which at the time housed military barracks. The competition was cancelled, but as fate would have it, a decade later Nikoloudis built the dazzling neo-Baroque structure we see today.

Financed through funds bequeathed to the project by Petros Saroglou, the building originally housed the Armed Forces Officers Club in 1932.
