Lykiardopoulos Building

Based on plans by architect Constantinos Kyriakidis, the Lykiardopoulos Building was constructed between 1926 and 1933, on Amalias Avenue at the corner of Tsangari Street.

An important example of 1930s eclecticism, the five-floor building reflects all modern trends of the period, incorporating many Art Deco elements. Considered extremely tall at the time, there were many negative reactions to such a massive building because of its close proximity to the Temple of Zeus and Hadrian’s Arc, as well its obstruction of the view towards the east side of the Sacred Rock.
