Bodossaki  Foundation new headquarters are located on 14th, Mourouzi Street, on a plot of 205,72 m². It is a 7-storey building with pilotis, basement and roof garden, which was designed by the architect Pericles Sakellarios in 1975.

The year of the construction as well as the needs of the new owner impose the total reconstruction of the interior of the building.

The concrete structural of the building, and its relation with the neighborhood define the architectural principles of the intervention.

The basic idea is to create a new facade that interacts with the rest of the buildings and with existing shell as well. Considering  the existing void and hole and the new function, a new rhythm is formed.

The existing windows of  the solid  concrete facade are redesigned with bold metallic frames and recessed, to add depth. The wall is covering by a grey marble, creating a new dialogue with the context of the area.
