Athens International Airport Office Building
Athens International Airport «Eleftherios Venizelos»
The rigid development framework of the building based on the airport’s organizational plan and its specific functional program led to the formation of a dense, orthogonal prism. The design follows the given horizontal axis that naturally places the building into the strict context of the airport. A vertical metal grid is suspended in front of the main façade and in conjunction with the linear canopy of the entrance, references a continuous, aerial movement. Specialized areas, like the freight forwarder offices and the customs chemical laboratories, are organized in such a way that the composition is functionally and structurally obvious.
