The project involved the urban area around the Open University building and the Heraklion Development Agency.
The local authorities wanted to aesthetically connect the buildings with the existing main road and at the same time to integrate their existing infrastructure. The improvement of the existing sewage system, the protection from heavy rain and the effect of torrents, a new pedestrian sidewalk, parking spaces and the preservation of the character of this designated Traditional Area where among the basic design factors that shaped our proposal.
