Info Point By The Seaside
This project is an Information Kiosk for the manicupality of Thssaloniki and it islocated next to Vasiliko Megaro, the Whiet Tower and in the beggining 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, who designed the pattern of the floor.The floor is the main feature of the kiosk, it was constructer from layers of coloured rasin, which create the illusion of overlapping and transparansy. It was carved with the use of a grid and finally it was polished with a varnish of high reflectivity. This had two advantages, firstly to provide the flooring with more resistance and secondly to provide the user with a light-headed feeling, in relation to the sea which is very close to the kiosk. All other elements of the kiosk were designed in whote or neytrual lines and materials, so the floor can be fully emphasized.
Vellums offices were designed and constructed by our architectural practice. It is the second office renovation for Vellum Educational Services. The tilt of the grid, on a plan level and the combination of the shapes with the original structure grid of the offices, created five sub-spaces which are not recognized right away. The light moves from the front offices to the back offices through glass windows and a large double door. The chosen style was Nordic Design with details based on the colours of the companys logo.
After the renovation was completed, Open House Thessaloniki was inspired by our design and created a bag from these offices on Agiou Mina Street! The insiration came from the colours and the fishbone pattern used on floors and walls alike.
We had the opportunity to design a dietery center who’s target group is children, located in Retziki, Thessaloniki. Because of the centers young visitors we chose polymorphic constructions- toys, in order to sepporate the waiting room and the main doctors office. For the same reason the colours are bright and playful and the textures are soft and cozy.
This proect is an elevation renovation for a ectlective hotel on Valaoritou street, in the historic center of Thessaloniki. The ornamental elements were restored and redesigned. The colours that were chosen were from a warm grey pallet, in order to create a contrast between romantic and modern design.
Restaurant in Munchen (Munich)
This project is a restaurant which specializes in greek cuisine placed Munich, Germany. The materials refer to traditional greek motives, such as wicker basket used on the stool seat and the terazzo flooring. The uniqueness of the exhisting building, because of the non-parallel walls, inspired us to create a metal grid in sea-blue colour, which defines the movement of any user and facilitates the procedure of the waiters when taking their orders.
We designed an orthopedic practice which consists of a physiotherapy office. The latter is boxed in a tilted plan which can be opened into a waiting space, the flooring of the room is linear wood so it is has a more familier feeling and texture, which is a referance to the comfort that the user will feel leaving a physicotheraputic session.
