Our proposal suggests the regeneration of the site, not only the artefact, which was the konaki Averof historical building, in a modern constructional and cultural context.The apparent panel of compressed straw, proposes a reconnection with the history of the place of the 19th century. Its exceptional thermal insulation abilities are able to reduce up to 95% the  air conditioning needs of the building. This energy efficiency of the new building classifies it in the category of passive hous buildings .

Το Μουσείο Μαστίχας Χίου στη νότια πλευρά του νησιού, σχεδιασμένο από το Γραφείο Κίζη, υποδέχθηκε το κοινό στις 11 Ιουνίου, με σκοπό να μυήσει τους επισκέπτες στην ιστορία της πολύτιμης φυσικής ρητίνης του τόπου. Το κτίσμα, εναρμονισμένο με το περιβάλλον, αποτελείται από δυο παράλληλες πτέρυγες, μισοβυθισμένες στη γη, οι οποίες ακολουθούν τη φυσική κλίση του εδάφους.  
 
Chios Mastic Museum, designed by Kizis Architects, opened its doors on June 11th, inviting visitors to discover the history of the island’s therapeutic resin. Located on a hill slope facing the medieval village of Pyrgi, the museum building is comprised of two parallel wings, half embedded in the ground, following the natural slope.

POSTGRADUATE ARCHITECTURE STUDENTS IN UNIVERSITY OF THESSALY IMAGINE EVRIPIDOU STREET IN ATHENS AS MEGAFORM
ENG / GR
 
Reviewing the city and its future, this studio aims to suggest a radical re-elaboration of the area of Evripidou, adopting a totally different character. A conceptual investigation leads to a formalization of a 1km long building in order to materialize the important axes of modern Athens, creating by this way a new urban body in a different scale in Evripidou street. We began the process thinking that the most basic component of our synthesis is its marker: the physical object erected to mark a locus in perpetuity. In our occasion this couldn’t be anything else but an elevated view to Acropolis. Due to its size, the building is clearly demarcated and set off from the world at large. To emphasize this perception/approach we focused on its form and how it can strongly differ from the cityscape. Another component of this synthesis is its specific site. Evripidou Street is traditionally commercial, but the narrow road and pavements seem to prevent an easy access.

Novi Vinodolski has received the Special Prize for Non Implemented Work and the Best Spa Prize in Hotel Design Awards 2015.
 
The brief called for the design of a 4* hotel in Novi Vinodolski, Croatia, on a plot of approximately 3,800m2, situated between a local marina on the northwest and the sea on the south, in an area currently undeveloped and disconnected from the city's front promenade and the rocky beaches and sea. Although the town is dominated by the tourist industry, the plot was left unused due to previous demolitions, and the regeneration of the entire area was required in order to create a new center of attraction for both travelers and the local community.

RESTORATION OF THE OLD PORT OF PATRAS - PANHELLENIC ARCHITECTURAL COMPETITION / F. ZAPANTIOTIS & S. PAPANAGIOTOU
The old harbor of Patra is a fundamental part of the history of the city. However, nowadays the role of the port has become a negative reserve to the city. Our main intent is to propose a design that will revitalize the port and reconnect the city with the seafront. This border between the city and the sea becomes our canvas, and will transform into a place that can act as a conciliator, a transition zone between water and solid matter, and uniquely identify as a point of public interest and expansion.

ΑΡΧΙΤΕΚΤΟΝΙΚΟΣ ΦΩΤΙΣΜΟΣ ΣΚΑΛΑΣ - STAIRCASE LIGHTING IDEAS AND INSPIRATION

Το κλιμακοστάσιο θεωρείται από τα πιο σημαντικά λειτουργικά αρχιτεκτονικά στοιχεία ενός χώρου αφού χρησιμεύει στη μετακίνηση από ένα επίπεδο σε άλλο, ορίζει άξονες κίνησης, διαδρομές και κατευθύνσεις. Εκτός όμως από τη χρηστικότητά τους, οι σκάλες μπορεί να προσδώσουν και διακοσμητικό γνώρισμα σε κύριους χώρους όποτε ο σχεδιασμός τους προϋποθέτει την αισθητική παρέμβαση του αρχιτέκτονα και του σχεδιαστή φωτισμού. Έτσι η τήρηση των προδιαγραφών για την ασφάλεια και άνεση του χρήστη συμπληρώνεται με σχεδιαστικά στοιχεία που μετατρέπουν το κλιμακοστάσιο σε αρχιτεκτονικό στολίδι.

THE EARTHLY ELEGANT YVES SAINT LAURENT MUSEUM IN MARRAKECH TO OPEN IN AUTUMN 2017
Two museums entirely dedicated to French designer Yves Saint Laurent’s work and life are to open in Paris and Marrakech in autumn 2017. The opening in Paris will coincide with one in Marrakech, a city Yves Saint Laurent discovered in 1966 and then visited regularly. Since Morocco remained essential to his inspiration and work, it feels natural to build a museum there to host the collection of the Fondation. It will be located on Rue Yves Saint Laurent near Jardin Majorelle, a garden he and Pierre Bergé saved from development in 1980 and that has now become, with its museum dedicated to Berber culture, a major cultural site in Marrakech with almost 700,000 visitors every year.

The site is located at the area of Marathon at the area where “The Battle of Marathon” took place in 490 BC between the Persians and the Greeks. A glimpse at their great strategic plan of the Greek army became the source of design inspiration for a perfect symmetrical house in the flat field in marathon. The layout of the Greek army that led them to victory was a ”Π shape” with a weaker center and stronger edges. Defining as the starting point the” Π shape”, the building evolves in such a way that it creates a perfect symmetry and mirror of itself . This symmetry extends to the surrounding field.The site is treated as a whole as a perfect “battle _field” of symmetry and order.

PLINTHECKE by ARISTOTHEKE EUTECTONICS [æ]
Plinthecke introduces a novel reiteration of the rural fortress. Partially alluding to an inhabitable bunker, the project simultaneously constitutes a reappearance of the hostelry as a building type. The equivalent Hellenic term reads as pan-docheio (πανδοχείο) and, as observed by its name, can meet a variety of programmatic scenarios. The volumetric parti of a raised topological field is materialized here as a low pedestal, a constructed plinth, otherwise construed as a thickened plate or a suppressed slab. The modern archetype of a “monolith rising over a datum” is re-exercised in a rather moderate, interim scale, merged here with the archetypal form of a solitary refuge of heavy masonry, thus composing a typological and morphological amalgam.

The location of the series are hundred year old buildings of Nagykörút, which are completely reintepreted by the chosen perspective, changing our ordinary spatial perception. As the buildings are framing the sky, the contrast is getting maximized between geometric, sealed networks of architectural forms and the unsubstantial, infinite space of the sky. Looking at the accurately constructed, central photographs, it feels like the buildings are tunnels driving to the infinity of the sky - and this is where time apperas, as if the floors leading to infinity represents time and age of the buildings.

The new Nobel Center – ‘Nobelhuset’ – serves not only as a setting where the admirable past of this prestigious award is brought together in one place; but also as a foundation for a new era, in which the achievements and ideals of the Nobel Prize will become an active and lively source of inspiration for generations to come.

PHOTOGRAPHER RORY GARDINER & STUDIO ENISAM CAPTURE THE BRUTALISTIC HERITAGE OF LONDON
The middle of the 20th century bequeathed a rather large supply of brutalistic architectural beauties to London. Today, the fate of some of them is under question, as certain housing projects seem to be considered ''failed'', while other buildings of similar style were much more favoured. Photographer Rory Gardiner & Studio Enisam captured these buildings and conveyed their underestimated grace.

THE TIME PIER - 3rd PRIZE / ARCHAELOGICAL THEMATIC MUSEUM OF PIRAEUS COMPETITON / GEORGES BATZIOS ARCHITECTS

The project proposes a radically different handling of public spaces and their relationship to the building through a minimalist palette of functional and aesthetic interventions. The operation is organized around a path (The time pier) that starts from the south side of Kekropos Street and ends at the last section of the museological program: an overhang on the east facade of the building prompting to  the restless space-time  of each civilization.

CORPO ATELIER INDUCT AN AMAZING WOODEN STRUCTURE INSIDE STONE WALLS
Four thick stone walls are the remaining elements of an ancient rural house. Like a box open to the sky, these walls enclose a volume that is no longer divided in two levels, but presents its real volumetric potential. A traditional pitched roof is placed to cover the top of the box. Inside, the wood structure that supports it is expanded vertically, trespassing the house in all its dimension, both dividing and hierarchizing the space.

A PAINTER'S STUDIO IN LOS VILOS, CHILE BY FELIPE ASSADI & FRANCISCA PULIDO
The painter's studio has been erected to one side of a house in Bahía Azul. A small space, it appears to be a prolongation of the terrain when seen from the entrance, but from the slope it stands out as a piece embedded in the hillside. The space, ultimately conceived as the prolongation of its own window frame, mediates between the sea and an interior garden located at the entrance. Reached by a narrow staircase, excavated out of the rock, it leaves the user in complete isolation. It is a sort of retreat from the surrounding constructions, basically just a wall with indirect sunlight entering from above to paint by.

Based on the above, we redesigned a small two bedroom apartment (90 m2). The main structural element is a large curved library which separates the living spaces from the master bedroom. The hidden door leading to the bedroom, cabinets and surfaces for paintings, add a welcome complexity to the separating element of the library.

LIGHTING DESIGN IN HIGH-END HOSPITALITY

Ο θερμός φωτισμός σε συνδυασμό με ‘ζεστά’ υλικά και χρώματα μπορούν να δημιουργήσουν άνετους και ευχάριστους χώρους, στοιχείο ιδιαίτερα σημαντικό σε έργα εστίασης, ψυχαγωγίας και φιλοξενίας. Η παρακάτω συλλογή με όνομα ‘gold’ συγκεντρώνει παραδείγματα από χώρους, υλικά, φωτιστικά και λεπτομέρειες και αποδεικνύει ότι η εσωτερική αρχιτεκτονική αναδεικνύεται με τον κατάλληλο αρχιτεκτονικό και διακοσμητικό φωτισμό αλλά και αντίστροφα. Όταν δίνεται προτεραιότητα στην ποιότητα της λεπτομέρειας και επιλέγεται το κατάλληλο φωτιστικό μέσο για την εκάστοτε εφαρμογή τότε τα αποτελέσματα στο χώρο μπορούν να είναι εντυπωσιακά, με μια αίσθηση πολυτέλειας και ποιότητας χωρίς απαραίτητα υψηλό κόστος. Σκοπός είναι η δημιουργία μιας εμπειρίας την οποία ο χρήστης επιθυμεί να επαναλάβει.
