Restoration of Makrygianni str.

KEY INFORMATION
Project Building Projects
Type Landscaping
Location Athens, Greece

Makrygianni Street was fully redeveloped and converted into a low traffic street. The architectural design stipulated marble paving of the widened sidewalks and a central corridor of approximately 5m paved with hollow pavers. The marble pavement of sidewalks is interrupted by hollow paver zones that are perpendicular to the direction of the street and delineated with marble curbs.

The existing row of trees was preserved and two more rows of trees are stipulated towards the center of the street. Routes for the blind and persons with disabilities were formed on all sidewalks. The existing municipal lighting network was upgraded with light fixtures similar to those on D. Aeropagitou Street. New surface water gullies are constructed. There was an emphasis to avoiding public utility works (PPC, OTE, EYDAP, HLPAP, Municipality of Athens) after the completion of the project.
