The design process started with a series of manipulations of the triangular site and its ground surface. This began by boosting the surface of the site, raising it up to create a slight rise. This was a ready solution that preserved the symbolic nature of the site in the urban fabric and the project design by drawing it out of the constrictive shape of the site.
Other site considerations that influenced the design were the underground tunnels leading from the nearby Byzantine church that prevented deep excavations, local business owners insistence on a design that didn’t obscure their shop windows and very narrow medieval streets that were unfit for large vehicles to enter the area affecting delivery.
