Mira Mare Hotel, Corfu Isle

Mira Mare Hotel, Corfu Isle

The Project

The hotel complex “Miramare” was built in the 60’s in Moraitika, Corfu and was renovated in the 1990s.

In 2014, it was requested to undergo a radical renovation, complete architectural and electro-mechanical installations redesign, in order to create a luxurious, five-star hotel, resulting also in an extensive intervention in the existing reinforced concrete structure.


The structure has suffered very heavy corrosion damage, mainly in two-storey buildings that are very close to the sea. The buildings consisted of independent successive suites, in a diagonal configuration. It was required for the strengthening to allow for the construction of a new balcony, as an extension of the ground floor roof slab.


The solution proposed was to convert the weak existing skeleton into a thin-walled multi-cellular reinforced concrete structure, so that the cells replace the existing linear elements and at the same time encapsulate them and protect them from further erosion.


The cells were made of shotcrete, on a lightweight metal frame, in the form of a residual formwork. The strength of the cells also allowed the construction of the desired balconies as an additional structural element.


The solution proved to be very fast, very economical, and externally allowed the combination with the ETICS (external thermal insulating composite systems) and internally the passage of the E / M-installations  into the gap with the dry construction, which was the final surface of the walls.
