Architectural modernism arrived in Greece just after the neoclassical era. It was about 1925-30 when buildings like this begun to rise their height in athenian sky. In the same time, neoclassicism was something like a national duty. The columns could not be abandoned at once. So (in this example) they included them plain and simple as an element of the last floor. Just as a touch, a reminder of the past.
