Project Description

Construction of a three-storey building with attic and basement in Gerakas.

The ground floor and the basement house an industry. The first floor and the attic are a duplex private residence. The roof has steep incline for photovoltaic installation, so to maximize the solar panels efficiency.

Great notice was given to waterproofing the basement walls, as the aquifer is highly leveled at the area, and to insulating the entire building.

Ground floor = 160.00 sq.m.

1st floor = 70.00 sq.m.

2nd floor = 70.00 sq.m.

Basement = 160 sq.m.
