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.
