ACADEMIA offices, which opened doors in September 2023 with the support of Europa Fund VI, proved to be the winner in the Renovated Office Building of the Year category.

The renovation of the repositioned building offers an outstanding client experience through the meeting of modern and traditional styles, placing great emphasis on sustainability.
