re – using the architectural heritage

The tendency to conserve the historic buildings of Athens, to re-use them, and to re-integrate them into the urban environment of the contemporary city as functional components began to gain ground after the late 1960’s and to acquire the form of a distinct and strong position during the 1970’s.

On this list you will find not only examples of re-used neoclassical structures but also buildings of the inner or after – war period that have been appropriately remodeled and put back into operation in order to offer solutions of contemporary problems and meet modern needs.
