Project Description:

The restoration of the Stoa Alieos buildings was conceptualized around the need to preserve and promote the special structural and morphological characteristics of a “Stoa”. As one of the most important retail Stoas of the city of Ioannina after the great fire of 1869, Stoa Alieos has special historical significance representing both a gathering place for citizens, as well as a typical example of local folk architecture. It consists of stone-built buildings (one-story and two-story with a basement), which develop on both sides of an internal road that connects the streets Independence and K. Katsari. The careful restoration of the buildings aims not only at the preservation of this historical monument, but also at its smooth reintegration into the encompassing urban fabric, in order to reclaim its status as a center of attraction for the inhabitants of the city.
