AKTOR participated in Phase B’ of the Athens Concert Hall (Megaron) complex extension which included the construction of 140,000 sq.m. of new spaces, almost entirely underground facilities, as well as the landscaping of a 20,000 sq.m. garden over the building.
Constructed in 1992, the emblematic building on Vassilissis Sofias Avenue was extended with the addition of a state-of-the-art 1,400-seat Opera Stage and a 400-seat Theater Stage, both equipped with the latest electromechanical infrastructure, stage equipment and theatrical lighting.
More specifically, the Opera Stage is one of the largest in Europe, including 4 synchronized platforms with a capacity of 30 tons and distance of 20 m, 8 smaller platforms and 9 stage trolleys, apart from the various other theatrical lifting mechanisms.
The two stages are framed by a high standard Conference Center, a 1,000-seat multifunction Banqueting Hall, an atmospheric foyer, functional exhibition spaces, a unique music library, a marble Atrium, a restaurant and other auxiliary spaces. In addition, the extension provided for a Car Park of 700 spaces with direct access to the Athens Concert Hall.
At the same time, the 20,000 sq.m. surrounding space of the Athens Concert Hall was landscaped into a high standard park of special construction demands. In particular, plantings of trees of a very big size and age took place, fulfilling the need of immediate public use of the space, while a large area of lawns and bushes offered an integrated aesthetic result to the site.
