The quality of the new buildings looks good, but how about the city infrastructure? The sidewalks and the roads look in a terrible condition. Is the municipality doing something to change this?

Well they definetely have to visit the SNF Cultural Center that this Saturday celebrated the commencment of the Christmas period with the participation of more than 15.000 visitors. Interactive luminous installations at the Stavros Niarchos Park, ice rink at the Canal, 3 tall Christmas trees at the Agora and another 80 decorated trees, put together a spectacular Christmas setting.

^ Where's the love button when I need one, I shall notify them,
they've already been asking me about places they should go, they heavily dislike the idea of going to a place and missing something they should've seen.
When they went to Venice they haven't been to the opera, and had no idea the city holds such a massive venue.

They called it the most impressive building of 2018 in Athens, but for Eleftheria Deko Lighting Design, the process of designing the lighting was an impressive journey. As the shape of the building represents a ship, honouring the new home headquarters of the Anangel Maritime Group, it was very challenging for the designers creatively.Taking into consideration that it is a building of 30,000sqm, all rounded in shape with only a few squared areas, the challenge for both the indoor and outdoor lighting was great.

The headquarters consist of two buildings that are connected with bridges, and the one of them is covered with a vertical garden.n the front and by the public road, there are two major water features that Eleftheria Deko Lighting Design left unlit intentionally, so that they act as mirrors to reflect the building, recalling the reflection of a ship in the calm harbour’s water. The landscape lighting is discreet and minimal, so the eye-catching subject remains the building.The light fixtures are unseen from the street/ground level. From the neighbouring buildings and from a higher view, the look at night reminds that of a lit ship.The building is awarded with the LEED Platinum certification. Fašade lighting had to comply with the requirements for LEED but at the same time had to be impressive as well as discrete.

The light installations at the SNF Cultural Center in Athens have already been the talk of the town. Do not miss them if you visit Athens during this period!! I have been already there twice! An amazing experience!

The new luxury hotel in the center of Athens is close to completion. Academia of Athens hotel that is located at the prestigious and elegant area of Kolonaki, will have 60 guestrooms and a rooftop garden with a restaurant facing the Acropolis and the Lycabettus hill. It is the first Autograph Collection hotel at the Greek capital and the third in Greece.

Theater on iconic Lycabettus hill to get makeoverl


http://www.ekathimerini.com/234985/a...o-get-makeover

Quote:
Authorities Thursday announced an ambitious plan to revamp Athensĺs Lycabettus Theater and the surrounding area on the hill of the same name in the city center as part of wider efforts to improve the image of the Greek capital.The first step will be to launch a tender for a 1.98-million-euro project to strengthen the structure of the outdoor theater and to repair its electronic installations so that it can become fully operational. Up until now the aging structure was only used sporadically.

Coco-mat Athens Jumelle in Athens, Greece, designed by Elastic Architects



http://kataskevesktirion.gr/coco-mat...4%CF%85%CE%BB/


Quote:
Elastic Architects carried out the architectural design of the Jumelle Coco-mat hotel, attempting to visually connect it with the existing Coco-mat Hotel, situated in the same area, by using a common architectural language.The hotel, with its unpretentious simplicity, caters to every visitor of the city, offering high-end services in one of the most central areas of Athens.Wood that has been used is cedar due to its soft coloring and resistance to air pollution. The colors approach the earthly shades combined in harmony with the wooden elements.The revival of bay window (erker) is emphasized by creating a cement plaster frame, in part of the existing balconies, which is emerging as a basic element of the architectural composition through the horizontal and vertical elements.

They kept it simple with the amphitheater's interior. Love the chairs.

Wrong thread . You couldn't see any trams between Syntagma and Kasomouli stations (4 stations in total). The rest of the line functions normally, you can use the metro from Neos Kosmos tram station to get to Syntagma.

Urgent maintenance works on river construction halt part of Athens Tram operation
Quote:
Urgent maintenance works on the construction and retaining walls channeling the river of Ilissos underground will disrupt the operation of the Athens Tram for an unspecified period of time.

Starting on Friday, October 19th 2018, the Tram will no longer operate up to end station <Syntagma> but will halt at <Kasomoulis> station in Neos Kosmos suburb of south Athens, the Ministry of Transport & Infrastructure announced on Wednesday.

Athens BC Hotel by Elastic Architects.


https://www.instagram.com/p/Bs5kYKRnyXO/



http://elasticarchitects.com/Athens_BC_Hotel.html

Quote:
Within the frame nests a contemporary interpretation of the grid, using timber for contrast. The combination draws inspiration from the Greek hospitality architecture of the 60’s and 70’s.

The main elevation allows permeability between the interior of the building and the urban space, in contrast to the introvert approach of the Syggrou Avenue elevation, were the back of house are situated.
The building expands into three clusters of guest rooms, in three separate levels, allowing a view to the archaeological findings situated within the site. The exposure initiates a dialogue with the urban environment, creating a new contemporary and easily accessible public space.
