2020 - Award Winning Sustainable Office Building in Athens


Location: Alexandras Av., Ampelokipi, Athens, Greece
Design: 2019
Green Building Certificate: LEED GOLD

In December 2020, the architectural office A&D Architects and Designers and Klearchos Maleas completed the construction of a new seven-storey building at 119 Alexandras Avenue in Athens, owned by TEN BRINKE HELLAS. The building includes offices, lecture areas as well as underground parking spaces with a total area of ​​6900sqm.

Particular attention was paid to the building’s form and location so that it fits harmoniously into the existing built environment and the geomorphology while standing out leaving the imprint of its time. The main element chosen for the building faces morphological solution is the perforated panels made of aluminum cells in the color of oxidized copper. The panels function as sunshades on the main face towards Alexandras Avenue which has a southern orientation. On the back faces, where the requirements for shading are less, the panels appear as a "parapet" completing the whole building aesthetics.

The building was designed according to the American standards for energy certification according to LEED. For that purpose, low energy construction materials as well as energy saving systems were selected for its operation. Meanwhile, large parts of the outdoor spaces on all floors were planted along with the surrounding area for microclimate improvement.
