type: urban design project title: Take a closer look!
location: Thessaloniki, Greece year: 2015 team members: 4
_the site: The project analysis takes place alongside one of the most historical and important axes of Thessaloniki, the Egnatia Street, As far as the analysis is considered, we singled out:
1. Poor building height-street width analogy 2. Neglected building facades 3. Indifferent facades of modern movement 4. Confined green spaces 5. Inactive inward green spaces of great potential
The project ‘‘Take a closer look!’’ is a route with the purpose of highlighting buildings and areas of significant interest on the wider area of Egnatia Street.
We prefered Saint Sophia Street as an example area, in order to show how our goals are going to be applied on an urban-design level.
MASTER PLAN A
In our proposal, three main routes are multiplied, creating areas, green points and materiality. The initial main line acquires a sufficient width and finally connects all the elements of interest in our area.
Key points of the project: 1. Egnatia Street, being a main street, is cut down in size; We keep 4 of the 6 existing lanes. 2. The main route embraces the monuments of the area. 3. Monument enclosings are removed. 4. The passer-by is guided by red material pieces in front of interesting buildings. 5. The seating areas are double slopes that function as viewing points to selected, architecturally interesting buildings.
6. The significant buildings of the area are pointed out by: -metal frames in front of buildings -metal frames on facades -red material pieces -projection of building information on green areas
road pedestrian street mild traffic street
As the traffic map of the area suggests, we altered a lot of streets from vehicle-type into pedestrian ones, and into mild traffic streets as well (woonerfs). We cut down on vehicle streets, wanting to give advantage to â€œstrollingâ€? and open space.

type: hotel design project title: Intersection points
location: Thessaloniki, Greece year: 2014 team members: 3
_the site: The urban landscape of the project in question is distinguished as a lawless part of the seafront, where equipped public areas and access to the sea are absent. This general context extremely obstructs the dialog between the city and the natural element of the water, despite the vicinity of the two. Moreover, the area was artificially constructed around 2000 to provide additional space for recreational, touristic facilities such as restaurants, which then ceased to exist. The outmost significant activity nowadays is the fishermenâ€™s routine.
_the proposal: The proposal is intending to renegotiate the relations between human activities the natural environment and thus creates architectural intersections to achieve that. The points of intersection here are conceived as spaces where actions driven by their users are taking place.
There are three fundamental impulses regarding the design of the hotel: 1. The communal spaces of the hotel are open not only to its guests, but also to the public, To this objective, there are three circular spaces, each one representing a different scale of privacy (public, semi-public, non-public).
2. The hotel complex is a mechanism for observing the natural landscape, nonetheless maintaining the dialog with the urban landscape. Its volumes, are designed to activate a unhindered observation of the sea. 3.
The existing artificial terrain is re-formed,
This kind of intervention also applies to the coastline. The greenery of the adjacent public spaces is continued in the hotel complex. As a result of the previous, the contact with the natural element is successfully retrieved.

type: museum design project title: Mount museo
location: Thessaloniki, Greece year: 2016 team members: 2
_the concept: This studio’s main objective is the design of a museum which collects and presents knowledge about the architecture of Thessaloniki. During the early stage of the project, we attempted to find the museum’s concept and museological scenario. To achieve that, a historical and architectural review was conducted, from the city’s infancy (316-5 B.C.) to the present day.
Ernest Hébrard: After the fire (1917)_ Modernizing the city (18-19th century)_ Thessaloniki is a timeless city with a rich culture and a long history, forming a kind of palimpsest.
Therefore, the concept of the project intends to express the evolution of architecture at different time layers as well as the affairs (economic-social-cultural) that affected it.
_Byzantine empire _Roman empire
Thus occurs the idea of layering as well as the idea of architectural traces left by one period to another. _Hellenistic period
_the design: In this way, the narrative scenario is articulated as follows: The exhibition is structured into 5 sections (Cores) and each one of them has two subsections. The historical journey (permanent exhibition) starts from the section of recent events and continues with a flashback, ranging from the Hellenistic period to nowadays. At he exists, the visitor is guided to the temporary exhibition.
The building is situated on a site between Aggelaki street and the central axis of TIF (Thessaloniki International Fair). The highest point has a 7 meters elevation distance from the lowest point. Thus modifying the original terrain, Level 0 is sunken into the ground, while the Cores emerge as sculptures above the base.
Each section consists of two free-layer exhibition sub-sections (floors). The circumstances (affairs) of each period are projected all over the walls of the Core unit, while the two layers are connected by a moving platform that represents the transition from one period to another. To move from one Core to another, visitors use bridges that represent historical links.

type: Diploma Project (Urban design) project title: Urban Stigma: participatory regeneration of the â€˜Finikasâ€™ settlement.
location: Thessaloniki year: 2017 team members: 3
_the site: The project is located in one of the city’s most tainted neighbourhoods, a social housing project built in the 60’s. Main objective of the diploma project is to provide residents with quality of life, through architectural design. Deepest concern is to override the area´s stigma.
_the analysis: With the intention of understanding the site and the needs of its current residents, we pursued two (2) methods of analysis: 1_Standard viewpoint, architect´s point of view. 2_Participatory viewpoint, people´s point of view.
methods we used STANDARD PARTICIPATORY IN situ IN situ photography< >conversation video< >video sketch< >enquiries notes< >small survey NOT in situ NOT in situ bibliography< >none
1. standard analysis
2. participatory analysis
analysis of tranformations (plans)
dialog with residents (what do they need?)
types: 101, 202, 204, 205, 206, 302 304, 402.
small survey (with what do they agree?)
photo analysis of variations (facades)
example: Question 4 (out of 12):
>’’Public space is designed to shelter a openair kitchen, a garden, a study hall...’’
we respect the need for personal statement
we design only positive answers

ic plan axis system
04 (connecting) will:
>create 4 neighborhorhouds >1 hub for each one >connect with ‘vanes’ >connect with commercial zone
intense activities area connection block hub
_the concept: The final masterplan evolves from many design experimentations. Memorable elements of the masterplan are:
1.‘Veins’ designed routes that:
> connect the two areas ajacent to the primary street. > create junctions, located in the commercial zone of the settlement.
2.The new commercial zone:
> in dialog with the existing ‘agora’ (market).
3.The central vein:
> a secure route from one school of the area to another.
> two-dimensional, radical intervention. The 4 axes of the strategic plan are clarified here as design guidelines.

type: ecoweek workshop/ unit design year: 2016 title: Ephememories team members: 10
_the ephemeral:. “Ephemeral” may be used to describe an object that has an expiry date, that is to say, lasts for a limited period of time. The “ephemeral” experience will end eventually, but nonetheless mark the human mind with a memory. Memories are the main reason why the paradigm of the ephemeral is so crucial in this workshop.

type: building/ expansion of wine storage
project name: Bodega- Chรกvarri family team members: AFV architects
_the project:. This particular proposal, an intervention on an existing building, is located in the outskirts of Galicia, Spain. The existing architecture is a wine storage, where light, humidity and temperature are controled. The vintners Chรกvarri (the owners) are willing to expand the building and enrich its use with open to public presentations and meetings.
type: Research diploma thesis year: 2017 title: SUPERUSE: Reconsidering the concept of refuse in architecture
team members: 1
WHAT IS SUPERUSE in architecture? 1. materials: available materials in the area define the morphology of the building. 2. harvest: the collection of materials is conducted with the use of harvest maps 3. energy: the greatest challenge is to avoid using redundant energy during construction.
VILLA WELPELOO (Superuse Studios)
60% of the villaâ€™s materials come from industrial refuse.
