Saint Panteleimon, Rest Home, Thessaloniki

The Project

An existing rest home in Thessaloniki, built in the 1950s and 1960s, was asked to be upgraded architecturally, as well as its static and antiseismic behavior.


The building has a reinforced concrete skeleton, perfectly uniform in plan and side view, and the method applied was the addition of reinforced concrete walls between the columns and L-shaped walls, connecting three columns at right angles.


The new walls are symmetrically positioned in the ground plan and extend at a height of three floors. The existing building does not have a basement, so the new walls had to be founded directly on the ground. New foundations were built and the slab on ground has been strengthened, in order to assure the fixation of the walls in case of an earthquake.


In addition, it was necessary to strengthen some coupling beams, connecting the new walls together, with a shotcrete jacket.

Cubus collaborated on this project with Professor Dr. E. Mystakidis.
