Family House, Anemonis, Dionysos, Athens

Family House, Anemonis, Dionysos, Athens

The Project

Reinforced concrete family residence, built in 1980 amphitheatrically on a hillside, at Dionysos, Attica, consisting of basement, ground floor and two storey’s.

 

In the short columns of the building  cracks appeared during the Athens earthquake in 1999 and its seismic retrofitting was proposed in connection with the modernization of the exterior facades. The combination of architectural and static enhancement is achieved by constructing a shotcrete shell of small thickness, with embedded steel profiles, possibly joined by chemical anchors and steel rods to the existing support structure.

 

This solution does not change the architectural solution, while at the same time creating large shear walls on the building shell and making it completely earthquake-proof. Its deformations in an earthquake are reduced and the risk of failure of the short columns, which are additionally protected with a steel jacket, is excluded.

 

The retrofitting measures were carried out without evacuation of the building and lasted less than two months. The result was absolutely elegant and safe.
