Axion Estin Monastery Restoration Underway in Australia

December 10, 2020

SYDNEY – Maintenance and restoration work is underway at the premises of the Holy Monastery of Axion Esti, in Northcote, Victoria. The first priority is the repair of damage found on the roof.

The project includes the restoration of damage that has accumulated due to lack of maintenance in the last decade, and will be performed with respect to the historicity and the special architectural physiognomy of the building.

Its implementation has been undertaken by the architectural Firm Andronas Conservation Architecture, led by the award-winning architect Arthur Andronas. Andronas’ Company has successfully completed many similar projects in Australia’s iconic buildings, including the restoration of the Victoria State Library, a project for which Andronas won three awards last July at the 2020 Victoria Architecture Awards.

One of the above awards was related to the practice that focuses on the preservation of the architectural heritage, a practice that will be applied to the work of restoration of the Holy Monastery of Axion Esti.

The economic crisis has had, and in many ways continues to have, a profound effect on contemporary culture in Greece.

There are more coffins than cribs in Greece, which has an incredible shrinking population despite financial incentives being given by the New Democracy government for couples to have children: they say they can’t afford them.

ATHENS - If you can fork over 5,000 euros ($5330) Greece is offering private tours of the otherwise mobbed Acropolis and Parthenon, limited to four groups up to five people escorted by expert archaeologists, while those who can’t afford it will have to wait outside.

STATEN ISLAND – It seemed as though the entire Greek community of Staten Island, the parish of Holy Trinity - Saint Nicholas, including the participants in its youth programs, Greek and Sunday schools, ‘Syllogos Kritiki Filoxenia' - Cretan Hospitality association, the Pancyprians of Staten Island ‘Aphrodite’ and the Hellenic Classical Charter school turned out for this year’s Greek Independence parade on 5th Avenue in Manhattan.
