Bjarke Ingels Group Unveils Park Rise Residences in Little Athens, Part of Europe’s Largest Urban Regeneration Project


Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) has revealed the design for Park Rise residences, a groundbreaking development in the Little Athens neighbourhood of Ellinikon, a key component of Europe’s largest urban regeneration project. Ellinikon is set to transform the former Athens International Airport grounds into a sprawling 6.2 million-square-meter smart city. Within this endeavour, Little Athens aims to integrate into Ellinikon’s smart urban ecosystem by introducing over 1,100 new residences along the northwestern coastline.

Located centrally in Little Athens, Park Rise boasts 88 residential units with varying sizes, ranging from one to five-bedroom homes. The unique architectural design features a curved concave façade, achieved by varying the heights of the building’s five cores. This innovative approach prioritises breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea on one side and the stunning mountains of Attica on the other. Residents can look forward to exclusive amenities such as fitness facilities, a 20-meter indoor swimming pool, and private ground-floor gardens for relaxation and reflection.

The building’s distinctive geometric character is emphasised by a diverse range of façade textures, from flute patterns on vertical surfaces to smooth finishes on soffits and flooring. The off-white, glass-reinforced concrete façade incorporates exposed aggregates, establishing a strong connection with the surrounding natural landscape. Local and natural materials are thoughtfully integrated throughout the development to promote a sense of serenity and comfort.

Ellinikon’s visionary development is strategically designed as a 15-minute city, ensuring residents and visitors have easy access to recreational, educational, and athletic facilities.
