In 2008 RECON implemented the redevelopment of the listed building at 3 Venizelou Street.

RECON's know-how and experience was a guarantee for the qualitative restoration and proper management of the building.

Historical data of the building

The Mansion Bourla, as it was originally named, at 3 Eleftheriou Venizelou Street & 4 Rogoti Street in the heart of the shopping center of Thessaloniki, was designed by French architects in 1925 and constructed by the Greek company EREKA SA in 1926 & 1927. It was handed over to the users in 1928 and has always been a commercial building with shops and offices. It was declared a listed building by Presidential Decree on 28/11/1983.


The restoration of the building was carried out with a view to enhancing its historical value as an architectural monument of the modern history of Greece. For the needs of the restoration were recruited specialized architectural engineers with scientific knowledge and proven experience in the restoration of listed buildings.

The study of the restoration provides for the faithful and detailed rendering of the original form of the building with regard to its external facades and internally in the portico and atrium.

Inside the building, the design of the project provides for the reconfiguration of high quality professional spaces where all the functional needs of a modern office have been carefully studied and solved.

Finally, the neoclassical style of the interior architecture with its characteristic spaciousness ensures visual and mental comfort to the occupants.
