This is the total renovation of an old bank’s branch in Peiraeus, about 700m2 in total. It has a large ground floor for the main banking transactions, a small mezzanine with a private and business service area and a basement with other auxiliary functions.


In terms of functionality, we changed the facility areas of the ground floor so that they cover the needs of the people today, we created more storage space and we upgraded the quality of the whole branch.


The main concept was to revive the past grandeur of a bank’s branch especially in a city like Peiraeus with historic public buildings, but with a contemporary touch of our time. That’s why we used a sleek design combined with a midcentury insinuation like the large screen that covers the staircase and leads to the mezzanine, made by metal structure and reed glass.


In order to achieve that we used materials like grey stone to the floors, white and bright surfaces, imitation of wooden elements to the ceilings and black, metal details like railings etc. A large black wall acts as a background for the whole public area and especially for a beautiful painting that was there since the beginning. Also, we used a very fined brushed aluminum foil to cover the high columns inside the façade’s glazing and the cabinets at the mezzanine.
