Lighting Design: Anna Gerasimou Doufou
Nikos Vavdinoudis – Christos Dimitriou | studiovd.gr
The aim of the design was to provide a functional and contemporary working space, which takes advantage of and highlights the incredible views to the Acropolis, Parliament Building and Lycabettus hill.
All spaces are arranged linearly along the main façade with the uninterrupted glazing and generous natural lighting. The various uses are differentiated through the use of bold contrasts of color and textures. On one side of the connecting corridor wall claddings are materialized in black marble with bronze edgings and high gloss white lacquer, while on the opposite side walnut veneers alternate with dark framed glazing.
Waiting and Common areas are marked by contrasting dark/light glossy surfaces, in order to evoke the luxury associated with the high profile of the Company. On the other hand, Meeting, Office and Resting areas are characterized by natural, earthy tones and extended use of wood and matte surfaces, in order to create a sense of relaxed elegance.
The repetition of linear wall claddings throughout the space, along with the color palette of white, black and wood tones, act as a unifying element of the overall intervention and set the tone of the general aesthetics. The same principles are applied also to the design of all custom-made equipment and furnishings, both in material, color and texture choice. The final outcome is one of a timeless space with a bold character, matching its unique location.
