Another interesting building on Kotzia Square is the eclectic-style Melas Mansion (designed by Ernst Ziller, 1887), with an impressive façade, and two small towers at the sides, dominates the south side of the square.
The central hall is covered with a glass roof. In the perimeter are Doric and Ionian style colonnades. Today, the building houses the Cultural Center of the National Bank of Greece.
One of the most important modern architectural sights of Athens, is the Administration Building of the National Bank of Greece (2002), designed by Greek architects, with the collaboration of the famous architect M. Botta. On the ground floor there is a restored section of the ancient Acharnai road.
