Project description

The challenge of the project was to come up with very limited resources and to achieve a quality architecture that comfortably handles the basic architectural elements, such as columns, walls, slabs, and openings, in order to create an airy interior with purified structure appropriate to the showroom and, relatively strict, business-like exterior of the building with rhythmic facade openings.

East oriented main facade provides good brightness of exhibition area throughout the day, with the sun beams directly entering the building only in the morning, thus eliminating the need for the use of shading, which would compromise the character of the exhibition building. Entrance zones are indicated by depressing the building and careful positioning of wall slabs, which are clearly different for visitors entering the showroom, for employees and for accessing the underground garage.

In the specific chaotic context which consists of the church, market hall, supermarket and shopping centre within the same block and in neighbouring blocks – the gas station, post office, small houses and high density housing – this new typology of a commercial building is a lo-cost showroom for the local company and their office space that we designed to sit proudly on the corner of this multifuncional block creating the visual order in this environment.
