This paper presents an existing 100 years old building that required renovation due to its deteriorated condition. Renovation was necessary due to inadequate seismic safety and energy efficiency. Simultaneously with the renovation, a reconstruction was planned to modernise and improve the functionality of the arrangement of existing living spaces. In order to implement this comprehensive task, a ground plan of the building needed to be drawn up as the original building plan could not be recovered. Next, suitable construction solutions for the renovation and reconstruction of the building needed to be drawn up and reviewed.
All possible solutions were based on maintaining the exterior image and outline of the building. The cost estimate of the said reconstruction was aimed at answering whether or not the reconstruction of the building was feasible in order to obtain useful residential facilities.
The alternative was to demolish the building. The final decision between the two options Will be made by the owners of the property.
