The architect’s description

Set in a bustling location and existing building in one of the key areas of downtown Athens, is a fresh food cafe and multi-functional space conceptualized into a packaging crate.

Using this metaphor, the ‘crate’ will be used to store its most valuable object – food – but also used for a variety of food related events such as exhibitions, presentations and so on.

Wooden studs are used in a multitude of ways to create different storage and display spaces inside the store, whereas chipboard panels cover the existing walls and ceilings. These simple and low cost units reference a packaging crate, in an attempt to create a space that is simple and structurally honest.
