On the ground floor, first floor en second floor will be suited program such as theatre/cinema, restaurant /café and hotel lobby with congress rooms. This will give a vivid happening at daytime and also at the late hours.

To make this new program successful we will plan also more parking facilities . The success of international landmarks are measured by means of visibility of far, the opportunity of frequent accessible by public traffic and accessible with private car. On the upper floors we planed hotel rooms and office spaces for national and international companies.


This is a benefit to attract international companies because they have the stay over facilities for their employees and guests. If these rooms are not used by the companies than they can be changed to office spaces or be used by an other hotel owner.

We have the experience that rooms and offices of different sizes work the best to give an answer for the national and international dynamics. This system will stay flexible and is easy to change to the demands of the users and the owners.

The interactive light architecture which response and exhibited on the façade the city life of Athene is also a metaphor as a light beacon for the harbour this is an reference of the ancient Greek see travel.

When the ships enter the harbour of Pireaus the people of the ships will be welcomed at the daytime by a green and sustainable landmark with a diagonal cut through of the building with a reference to Acropolis and to …………. as known for the visitors and inhabitants of Athens.
