MVRDV selected by the Port of Thessaloniki to revitalise the waterfront

The Port of Thessaloniki has commissioned MVRDV to lead the evolution of the eastern part of the Greek city’s port into a modern urban environment and a multi-character major hub. The project, which will be MVRDV’s first in Greece, aims to raise the international profile of Thessaloniki and enable it to compete on the world stage.

As Greece’s second-largest city and the capital of the country’s region of Macedonia, Thessaloniki has historically been an important crossroads between the Balkan states, the Aegean Sea, the Mediterranean, and the Middle East.

και κατασκευή κτιρίων nZEB παραπέμπει σε βέλτιστο σχεδιασμό των παθητικών χαρακτηριστικών του κτιρίου και μέγιστη αξιοποίηση Α.Π.Ε., μέχρι και σήμερα οι κατ΄εξοχήν απαραίτητες Τεχνικές Οδηγίες του Τεχνικού Επιμελητήριου Ελλάδος (Τ.Ο.Τ.Ε.Ε.), αυτές του Βιοκλιματικού Σχεδιασμού και της διαστασιολόγησης και αξιολόγησης των συστημάτων Ανανεώσιμων Πηγών Ενέργειας (Α.Π.Ε.), δεν έχουν εκδοθεί.

Επιπλέον, βάσει της ισχύουσας Τ.Ο.Τ.Ε.Ε. 20701-1/2017, ο μέν βιοκλιματικός σχεδιασμός παραμένει κατ’ ουσίαν άκυρος,

PG .: The Hermione Hills is a tourism development project consisting of a 4-star hotel situated in a 45-acre olive grove close to  Kranidi and Hermione in Argolida, in the eastern Peloponnese. The hotel is designed to accommodate a variety of tourism activities, including cookery lessons, congress tourism and agro-tourism. Our goal is to continuously operate the hotel throughout the year.
