PROJECT 01

Collectively Industrial The Anthony Way CLT Headquarters

Anthony Way Industrial Estate Meridian Water, Enfield Tutor: Ulrike Stevens 2019

How could we preserve industrial activity in the city? Collectively Industrial addresses the loss of industrial land in our cities and proposes for industry to actively participate in the reimagining of industrial estates. To ensure a more sustainable future for everyone, it is important to retain industrious activity within the city. Reduced travel distances between the production premises and the market will reduce congestion and carbon emission, while retaining the industry in the city secures employment, diversity and resilience. To achieve this, the project stresses the importance of enhancing the existing environmental and social performance of the industrial estate, while extending its function. It envisages the creation of a Collective Space within the Anthony Way industrial estate for discussions and production of plans for the future of the area, a Collective Resources Bank (childcare, shop, tools bank, meeting room, printers, electric forklifts and electric vans) for both businesses and the community alongside a Waste Bank. The site of inquiry of the project was the Anthony Way Industrial Estate, on the south East edge of the Meridian Water regeneration area. Meridian Water in Enfield, North London, envisages the creation of 10000 homes and a significant employment creation.

PROJECT 02

Live Afloat The Canal Travellers Cooperative Headquarters

Island Site, Nottingham Tutor: Stephen Parnell 2015

34

How can architecture be a means of establishing a fair ground within the future city of 2040? Live Afloat The Canal Travellers Cooperative Headquarters is a spatial exploration of how can we redefine equality and enjoyment within a rather contaminated urban stratum, not just a measurement of minimal standards that everyone can afford, but of aspirations that everyone can share. The project aims to challenge architecture as we know it today and to establish an architecture of being rather than an architecture of appearances. The architecture of being is defined as a form of minor architecture stripped away from the excess of 21st century. More specifically, the project suggests the creation of a self sustained structure that evolves through time to accommodate the needs of a new generation of people, mainly canal boat travellers that have chosen a slower way of living in parallel to the hustle and bustle of the city. The speculative projects occupies the Island Site in Nottingham.

A Research Document- Task 01- and a Strategic Planning Report- Task 03- for the East Bank site of the Meridian Water regeneration area has been produced for the London Borough of Enfield. Task 01 entails a quantitative and qualitative investigation of the existing economical, social and physical characteristics of the site through a detailed analysis across 5 scales (London, Meridian Water, the Eastbank, Typological and the Individual) as a means to develop a clear understanding of the qualities and characteristics of the existing site and the potential opportunities for retaining a vibrant, active and diverse masterplan. By taking into consideration the preliminary research, as well as the New London Plan Task 03 report outlines a series of strategic intentions for the Meanwhile Use development of the site. The report puts emphasis on retaining and value the existing Industrial ecology and on highlighting industrial land as a thriving and profitable space.

Marathon Boy Bookends Silver A’ Design Award 2016

Design Team: SOPHIA Enjoy Thinking Sandra Alevra 2016

50

In a period when Greece and the unprecedented socio-political impact that the financial crisis triggered were in the limelight, our aim was to promote the positive aspects of our home country and to support its local economy. We created a series of unique object that would promote the ancient Greek heritage through contemporary design. The Marathon Boy Bookend, which was awarded a Silver A’ Design Award in 2016 for the category Furniture, Decorative Items and Home-ware Design, does not just serve aesthetics and functionality, but a strong idea. This creation is a Golden Era messenger whispering the story of a victorious young athlete. It is made out of ceramine -a mixture of earth and marble powders- a material produced to imitate the properties and the effects of the materials used in antiquity.

PROJECT 05

SOPHIA Enjoy Thinking LIVE Concept Store

SOPHIA Enjoy Thinking LIVE occupies the pilotis of a modernist multi-story apartment building (polykatoikia in Greek) in Athens. The space has been renovated to accommodate unique design collections. It welcomes everyone to explore, to discover, to do, to think, to dream, to write, to share, to discuss, to create, to get inspired and to live. The renovation of the ground floor space is highlighted by two key design gestures that aimed to narrate the story of the brand. An abstract doorway, made out of acrylic in a striking blue colour is half resting on an archaic architectural column, is decorating the glazed facade of the space. The installation suggests that one immerses into a place, where eternity meets modernity and art flirts with design.

Project Architect: Rallou Grigoropoulou Design Team: Rallou Grigoropoulou Contractor: A&T Kontodimas 2018

54

The straight lines of the two-storey height space are obstructed by a fluid geometry as one escalates its gaze towards the ceiling. Two overlapping ellipses of different radius, positioned at a very short distance from the ceiling, embrace the top edge of the a circular column at the heart of the space. The shapes, which refer to the path that a planet traces around a star, create the sensation that one enters into a whole new universe! Welcome to the universe of thinking!
