Apartment Building

Apartment building of modern architecture at New Seafront.

  1. Modern and Contemporary era (1912 - )

    Built during the 1960s.

  2. Ottoman era (1453- 1912)

  3. Byzantine era (331 AC- 1453)

  4. Roman era (30 BC- 330 AC)

  5. Hellenistic era (322- 31 BC)

  6. Classical era (478-323 BC)

  7. Archaic era (800-479 BC)

  8. Geometric era (-1100- 800 BC)

  9. Prehistory (-1100 BC)

What I can see

The biggest feature of this apartment building is the rectangular canvas, which acts as a “second facade”, giving rhythmicity to the facades on both external sides, due to the different sizes of the vertical axes. This is a classicist reference on a building of post-war modernism and a time when Brutalism in Europe was flourishing. The ground floor is recessed and an arcade is formed.

What I can't see

This apartment building, like many of the same era, belong to the so-called post-war urban apartment buildings, i.e. those that meet more safety standards, are more functional and more complete as structures, compared to the first apartment buildings of Thessaloniki of the early 20th century and interwar period.
