The Project

It is a neoclassical, heritage-listed building, built in the 1930s, in Exarchia, in the center of Athens, with walls of load-bearing stone masonry.

It consists of basement, ground floor and a first floor.

To be used as a family dwelling, the building requires the strengthening and redesign of the load-bearing body and the re-construction of the E / M facilities “from scratch”.

The method of strengthening internally the peripheral walls was chosen, adding a structural steel framework in combination with shotcrete, fully attached to the stone masonry.

On the structural steel frame, the new composite plates were supported.

The internal partitioning was realized with dry-wall construction.

The above described design made the building completely earthquake resistant, by turning the peripheral stone masonry into a load-bearing structure of high-strength against horizontal earthquake forces.

The construction was easy, fast and did not require any major intervention at the foundation level except at the support points of the metal columns.
