This diploma project focuses on the relationship of local residents of “Epano Skala” in Mytilene on the region and ways to improve it. The aim is to overthrow the existing situation and the emergence of the historical region of “Epano Skala”. I recommend a general reformation of the region as the current situation is degraded greatly. My proposal emphases on the seafront and the view from there. Being the strong element, its reinforcement can change its character, making it more accessible to the residents themselves and showing them a new way of dealing with the public space.
Basing intervention is the paving and the pedestrianization of the study area, creating a beach free of the movement of the vehicles, suitable for walking and discussions by the sea. The configuration of the seafront changes, by creating an organic path with plantings and stop points, while placing a new operation of small libraries for the young people in the region and in the city generally.
Apart from the configuration of the seafront, another three intervations with buildings are treated in the area. A museum of navigation operates in an existing unused building, a space of entertainment and concerts and a parking. The museum houses in a building by the sea ideal for this function and has been already proposed by the municipality without positive responses. The space of entertainment and concerts is a great unused space area. This function is not needless for the city of Mytilene which in recent years is full of all types of events. The parking being the most difficult part of this project, is still highly needed even before the pedestrianization of streets in this area.
