50% COLLABORATION WITH K. KYRIAKIDIS & ASSOCIATES S.A.

At the heart of Thessaloniki, lies the Platia commercial and business centre, a striking 20,000 m² building with neoclassical charm and modern infrastructure. Two basic elements characterized the project and the form of the building.

 

The first was the location of the complex in the city’s historical, commercial and administrative centre, while the second was that it should keep the two listed facades of former Austrian-Greek tobacco company. The building was developed through the entire 4,811m² site in an enclosed shape that forms an interior piazza/atrium. The functions are distributed throughout the ground floor eight floors aboveground and a four storey underground parking area, and are accompanied with all the necessary customer service, storage and electromechanical service areas.

 

The three first floors consist of shops while the other six floors are used for office areas and functions such as cinemas, bowling etc. Key parts of the building were constructed exclusively out of metal while the interior facades were clad with red decorative brick.
