Info Point By The Seaside

This project is an Information Kiosk for the municipality of Thessaloniki. It is located between the Vasiliko Theatre of Thessaloniki and the White Tower, and it is situated at the beginning of the neo-cultural axis from the statue of Alexander the Great until Telogleio.

The Info Kiosk was realized with a donation from the Stavros Niarchos fund in 2018 in collaboration with Natasa Chatziaggeli’s office, which designed the pattern of the floor. The floor is the main feature of the kiosk, it was constructed from layers of colored resin, which create the illusion of overlapping and transparency. It was carved using a grid and was polished with a varnish of high reflectivity. This technique had two advantages, firstly it provided durability to the floor and secondly, it provided a light-headed feeling to each user, giving a sense of relation to the nearby sea. All other elements of the kiosk were designed in white or neutral lines and materials, so the floor can be fully emphasized.
