INTERCITY AND URBAN BUS TRANSPORT STATION INCLUDING CORPORATE OFFICΕ SPACE, PETROL STATION AND SHOPS.
PROPRIETOR: KTEL FOKIDAS S.A.
The company undertook the procurement and reformation of two existing commercial buildings of total area of 925m2 on a 1,5-acre site.
The brief was very demanding due to the requested building specifications and use. The design strategy involved divercity in planning construction, since one of the buildings was a structural steel-framed shopping building enveloped in polyurethane panel walls and roofing, while the other was a reinforced concrete building frame, addressing the actual transport station, and it was cladded in bricks and plaster. The original design of bus circulation on the site was altered in terms of a more efficient daily use, while the passenger entry shelter was redesigned, using structural steel frame and polyurethane roof panels, to give a more dramatic and inclusive effect to boarding and landing, by reverberating the shape of the building.
