This study’s basic objectives were the internal arrangement, the change of facades and the static reinforcement of an existing building and its conversion into a pharmacy store. The building has been reconstructed a number of times through the past. These sequences of changes have result into the building’s morphological inhomogeneousness and its static discontinuity. As far as the internal arrangement concerns, the new shop is articulated with the main space of sales and the auxiliary spaces of storage in the level of ground floor, while in the first floor is entertained a secondary space of sales as well as the supporting operations that are required. Externally, the south-western utmost of the building it is shaped by a vertical glass panel, which covers entirely the western and part of southern facades, so that the internal spaces beyond are ensured by full lighting while at the same time the creation of single surface of projection of the shop is being created. Main element of articulation on the facades is the vertical lampshade, which surrounds the building from the Eastern and southern side.
