Stavros Niarchos Foundation

Stavros Niarchos Foundation

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center is located in Kallithea, the historic Athenian seaport district on Faliro Bay. The site is formed by a vast park on an artificial hill. Its sloping surface culminates at the top in the cultural center building, containing both the opera house and the national library. A public space, known as the Agora, provides access and connections between the two wings of the building. With its spectacular 360-degree views, the new complex re-establishes the district's relationship with the sea and with the rest of the city.

Its design was conceived using the most advanced anti-seismic technologies and innovative solutions in terms of environmental sustainability that have resulted in a LEED Platinum rating. At the summit of the hill is a panoramic terrace that forms the roof of the building. The concrete canopy roof over the terrace is topped by photovoltaic panels that supply most of the power needs of the entire complex. Lightness of form and functionality also characterize the interior architecture, where the offices, task areas, and meeting rooms are brilliantly solved by partition systems and furnishings aimed at simplification and comfort.
