Aigio is a coastal city in the Northern Peloponnese and is the second largest city in Achaia. The coastal front of the city of Aigio is a large elongated area about two kilometers long, quite separated and isolated from the city due to the large slope that exists in the south of the area of 60m. This is a case of a problematic front, with a lack of variety of uses and public spaces, a large number of unused industrial buildings as well as weak connections from the east to the west end.The present work of regeneration of the central part of the coastal front, has as main goal the remodeling of the area aiming at the better, more practical and atmospheric connection of the area with the city. Our intervention is based on the revival of the historical and industrial character of the area, with the aim of highlighting the raisin warehouses of the area as well as the utilization of the special natural landscape to create alternations between artificial and natural element
