Valtara Sofia, Chalvatzi Aikaterina-Maria “Reoccupation: The old chimio”

This final thesis refers to the reuse and expansion of the old Chimio in Athens. While the building is situated in the center of the city and has great sentimental and historical value, during the last five years it is deserted. Important for its refunction is the finding of a proper use, that would be a natural continuity of its function and wouldn’t confront its history.

The synthetic choices underline the interventions in serious areas, that do not disturb the building’s balance.

The intention of the project is to embody the building in its environment, to mark it out and make it useful and viable.
