Specifically, we were able to reach to a comprehensive proposal for the building's design and reuse based on the principles of architectural composition, through the identification of the damages and their causes, the study of building's repair and reinforcement methods, as well as the restoration of its damages.
The use of the new building, after the restoration will be wine taste house, cellar and wine shop.
