In the late 1950s, Konstantinos Doxiadis, one of the leading figures of modern Greek architecture, was looking for a site to build his new company’s Athens offices. He selected a plot in the pine-clad foothills of Mount Lycabettus, a vantage point that afforded sweeping views of the city as far as the sea. Divercity architects were inspired by Doxiadis’ philosophy when converting his former headquarters into a 21st century residential complex by the name of One Athens. Maintaining the elegant simplicity of the structure, the new design remains faithful to the legacy of this landmark, but forward-looking in its cutting-edge design, innovative use of materials, and ability to respond to modern lifestyle. L4A continued and completed the lighting development started by Diathlasis SA.
