Hydrotherapy Center and Spa, Vouliagmeni Lake, Athens

Hydrotherapy Center and Spa, Vouliagmeni Lake, Athens

The Project

It is an existing, listed building, which operated as a hydrotherapy facility.


It was built in 1930, in the lake of Vouliagmeni, in Attica

.

The lake is a special natural phenomenon of exceptional beauty, it is located by the sea and has hot, thermal water that is fed by both the earth’s moors and the depths of the sea.


The building is made entirely of reinforced concrete, both the outer shell and the internal walls.


Indeed, it is one of the early applications of reinforced concrete in Greece.


The purpose is to reconstruct the building with new partitioning and the same use as a hydrotherapy facility.


The solution proposed is perfectly compatible with the original construction.


In order to make the new partitioning, a new reinforced concrete framework is created inside.


Slabs and vertical elements are replaced.


The new “load-bearing” body is connected to the existing outside, which is maintained, and they together create a new “load-bearing” body completely earthquake-resistant.


The corrosion that has undergone the outer shell (reinforcement corrosion, concrete cover, etc.) has to be repaired and restored using the most modern means.


In the outer shell, the architecture of the old building will be preserved in its own style, the minimal, symmetrical, imposing, reminiscent of Bauhaus.


Internally, a new architectural solution will be implemented to meet the modern needs of a hydrotherapy facility.


The E / M installations will be completely new, in order to fully exploit the healing and therapeutic function of the structure.


The construction of the building has not yet been implemented.
