FACADE REFURBISHMENT PROGRAMME
Location: Athens, Greece
The facade refurbishment program named “PROSOPSIS” was developed by the Municipality of Athens as part of the
Athens 2004 Olympic Games. Its main goal was to stimulate the owners of private buildings, to renovate their
facades, by financing part of the works. The project consisted of finding solutions for simplifying architectural
surveys in a way that they could correspond with the economic aid that each owner would receive from the
municipality. In addition, effective working methods for colour studies of each building had to be conceived
so that the municipality architects would collaborate with the owners for free architectural consultancy.
The project resulted in the refurbishment of more than 2000 building facades.
