EIGHT, Office Complex
The new office complex "EIGHT" is an example of contemporary office premises located in the area of Marousi in contact with Fragoklissias Str. designed by People Architects. Given the rapid development of the region, it has been considered necessary to study the building from the ground up to meet all needs of every-day business activities, taking full advantage of its easy accessibility as well as its dominant presence.
The complex was placed along the north - south axis of the building plot. It consists of two separate volumes connecting with each other along the axis of East – West, with the East volume to be in retreat. Due to the slope of the plot, an artificial ground level at -0.10 compared to zero has been created, while the level of the ground plate is in ± 0.00 with respect to this level. The entrance to the two volumes of the building is through a central entrance at their junction.
At the exterior, faithful to the basic design strategy, we created a bold look using white elements that surround the building while ensuring the protection of users from the sun.
