AIA - New Building Parking

Year: 2009-2010
Customer: K + P Group S.A.

Under the construction of the new over-ground parking area of the short term​ parking P1 at Eleftherios Venizelos airport in Athens, the project included the design of the surrounding area at the Arrivals level.
At the entrance of the building a new plaza was created with dominant use of water as the main element. The main objective was to design a plaza that is both a landmark and meeting point for users and a pleasant entrance for the Parking Building. All floor materials are natural and the use of nested marble ‘steps’ creates, in conjunction with inserted floor lights, distinctive paths from the Arrivals Building to the Parking Building.
On the south side of the building, the circular ramps are framed at the ground level with arched-shape plants masses that give the impression that the building emerges from the existing planting area.
