The three-storey office building with three underground parking floors, for a company of 1,700 in-house employees and 1,100 parking spaces, is located at Paiania in Attica Greece. The total area of the building amounts to 60000 m2.Due to the fragmented polygonal shape of the plot, the building was conceived as a partially open wooden meter, complying with the local legislative directives and maximising the resulting lot coverage. The resulting building volume consists of six three-storey wings and a covered atrium which doubles as the main entrance to the complex.
The façades of the building are characterized by floor to floor glazing, allowing deep light in the office spaces. The of natural working conditions is ensured by horizontal shades throughout the entire building, thus deflecting the direct sunlight and the consequent overheating created by the glazing.The entirety of the elevations is covered by nine rows, 1m wide, aluminum louvres which provide substantial solar shading as well as visual unification of the six fragmented wings.
