The area of Metaxourgeio is mainly used for residence. The recent decrease of building ratio makes the construction of new multistory buildings nonprofitable, so apartment buildings are left at the standards of 60s-70s. The objectives of this thesis are: changing the building's exterior, integrating a public program, emphasizing the communal spaces and changing the apartment's typology. A complete reformation is made in the interior, maintaining the shell of the building. Also, a patio is created for better illumination and ventilation, a system of exhibition spaces/multispaces is also created and apartments are designed with open plan. The exterior's balconies are decreased and windows are increased. The apartment building is changing.
