The coffee shop is located in the Athens and has an area of 300m2. The concept was to create a chilled environment that gives the impression of being in a garden. For this reason green walls was installed in two semi-opened spaces. These spaces get sunlight from the openings in the roof and in summer months the metal shades protect from direct sunlight. We used modern furniture such as lc2 sofas to create a retro feeling. The use of natural materials such as wood, cement and rusted metal combined with the concrete sculpture created from Gianni Aspras give an industrial style in the coffee shop. The building, an old industrial building got a bioclimatic shading system with perforated metal panels. Pictures of street art and graffiti decorate the walls.
Pavlos Chatziangelidis founded 314 architecture studio in 2004. He studied civil engineering in National Technical University of Athens 1996-2002 and architecture engineering in The University of Thessaly 2006-2012. In 2004 he acquired a Master of Arts degree in design. The name 314 of the studio, is inspired from the mathematic symbol π = 3,14 that is used to count the area of the circle. This reference is related to the philosophical dimension of the concept of the circle. The basic characteristic of his design beside the ecological, social and programmatic dimensions of the project, is the creation of a shell that urges the user to experience an abstraction.
