What I can see

The renovated Kallithea station underwent radical changes. Only the old canopies and the elaborate metal pillars that support them have been preserved and refer to the interwar era. The docks were reconstructed and covered with lava slabs, equipment, security and supervision areas were built, the lighting was modernized, the surrounding area of the station was restructured and the covering material of the roofs was replaced by copper plates.

What I can't see

The architects of the renovation Suzana and Dimitris Antonakakis (Atelier 66) established the term “critical localism”, i.e. highlighting the peculiarities of the place or space with a parallel critical look and application of international trends. The Kallithea metro station is a typical example of their work. The comments about the station were also very positive at its first opening, as it harmoniously combined elegance with functionality, following the then European standards.
