Panepistimiou is a great street in Athens with shops and buildings in different


styles.


The idea was to create a space in which 'container' and 'content' serve two


different functions:


the 'container' (outer space) is 'pure communication', a vibrant shades of green


compact volume (evergreen brand communication) that is capable of capturing the


people’s attention along the street; the 'content' (inner space) is just the opposite,


it is a full monochrome coffee-colored concrete space (floors, walls, columns,


stairs, bar counters) that is able to accommodate customers in a special


enviroment 'protected like a cave'.


A long suspanded olive wood counter top-table it offers to the customers a direct


contact with the ‘coffee maker’ and the ‘barista’ while encouraging socialization.


A staircase, lit by a metamorph coloured LED, announces the upstairs space with


the toilettes that are characterized by some 'green apple surprises'.
