Villa Lysis, Amori et dolori sacrum

Villa Lysis is dreamy and extremely decadent.. being built 1905 by French Count Jacques d'Adelsward Fersen. it's have inspiration from classic temples, but you can also recall Klimt, Olbrich and the "Viennese secession", and the decorative details of the handrail of the staircase are in true Art Nouveau style.. the house even have an opium den in the basement where Fersen committed suicide 1923. with cocaine..
