Invisible Hotel/ Transparent City in Athens, Greece by blp architects

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Article source: blp architects

Invisibility is essentially a question of transparency.

In 1963 Colin Rowe in his article Transparency: Literal and Phenomenal set the framework: \”At the beginning of any inquiry into transparency, a basic distinction must perhaps be established. Transparency may be an inherent quality of substance- as in a wire mesh or glass curtain wall, or it may be an inherent quality of organization\”. As an organization quality \”transparency means a simultaneous perception of different spatial locations\”.

The brief we were given called for an exclusive Japanese restaurant and bar in the northern suburbs of Athens.

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

Article source: Triopton Architects

Alaloum Board Game Cafe is located in Nea Filadelfeia, a suburb in north east of Athens, and addresses board game lovers.

According to Triopton Αrchitects, “the very specific function of board gaming inspires and determines the design concept.”

The café is developed in two levels of total space of 160 sq.m. The concept behind the café is mainly focusing on preserving and enhancing the strict geometries of the structure, thus creating a welcoming, yet subversive environment influenced by the creative imagination and variegation of a board game.

Thessaloniki’s Wet Dream in Greece by Not a Number Architects

Friday, August 16th, 2013

Article source: Not a Number Architects

The project is a proposal for a subterranean public bath beneath a central urban plaza with a glazed roof at street level. Responding to the city’s ambitious plans for the total redesign of Eleftherias Square (i.e. Freedom Square) into a landmark that will become a magnet for the city and beyond, our proposal sets to re-establish Thessaloniki’s long lasting culture of public baths as a form of built social space par excellence.

RESIDENCE IN LARISSA, GREECE by Potiropoulos D+L Architects

Thursday, July 25th, 2013

Article source: Potiropoulos D+L Architects

The concept refers to the agricultural landscape of the Larisa’s plain which reminds of a multicoloured orthogonal puzzle. Both the austere shape of the building volume, as well as the design discipline of the surrounding garden – which is organised in geometrical areas of different plant species – constitute the expression of this memory.
