Headquarters, Hangar|& Repairing Base Complex|at Athens International Airport

National Architectural Competition 1st Prize

The Olympic Aviation facilities include offices and the repair and maintenance center of its aircrafts. The program dictated a mixing of typical and special uses that led the design towards a multilateral internal structure. Thus, the office spaces develop along an L-shaped layout, enclosing the functional units of the warehouses, mechanical workshops and the repair room itself, which utilizes the full height of the building. At the same time, the extensive use of metal and glass alleviates the visual weight of the building volume. Rows of iron overhangs and shades run along the elevations, describing a “machine-building” that embraces high-tech construction options.
