The aim of the design was the aesthetic and the functional upgrade of an area of 400 sq.m, part of the facilities of the company Iliadis Alexandros S.A., in 7th KM Thessalonikis – Lagada National Road, Greece. The company operates in the field of import, export and wholesale of gift, seasonal and decorative items. The company is accommodated in an industrial building of 12.000 sq.m with showroom, cash & carry and central warehouses. The intervention area includes the entrance area, the cash zone as well as the office spaces. The concept of the design was based on the idea of “box in a box” design: multicolored volumes are integrated in the existing building shell in order to accommodate the various functions, preserving yet upgrading the industrial character of the existing building.
