Eye Clinic of Athens

This building creates a sharp contrast to Hansen’s architectural trilogy as it is a rare example of the Byzantine rhythm. It was initially designed by Hansen, but it was eventually built by the Greek architect L. Kavtatzoglou in 1847. He changed the originals adding elements inspired by the Byzantine tradition.

Hotel Grande Bretagne (Demetrius Mansion)

The original form of the Hotel Grande Bretagne has been completely altered. Originally it was built as the luxurious house of the Greek family Demetrius by the German architect Th. Hansen also 1842. For the first time in Greek architecture neoclassicism was mixed with elements of the renaissance architecture.

The Greek Parliament

The building of the Greek Parliament right on the most central square (Sintagma Sq.) was originally the first palace of King Otto. It was built in 1842 by the German architect Fr. Von Gartner. It is built in a restrained neoclassical style. It was sponsored by King Otto’s father who refused to pay extra money for luscious exterior decoration.
