What I can see
The former PALCO underwear factory is a typical example of industrial architecture with strong Bauhaus influences. With the restoration of the building and its new uses, its original charm was not lost, as its main facade was preserved. The sculpture declares its new use, i.e. it is a multi-purpose space of culture, innovation, high technology and lofts.
What I can't see
Its basement was an important anti-aircraft shelter in the area during World War II. During the operation of the factory, the workers worked non-stop. Today, the multi-purpose space that it houses has given rise to a successful architectural design, in which the spaces are flexible to serve different types of events and the central hall of 1,500 sq.m. stands out. The offices of the Athens-Epidaurus Festival are also housed here.
