PALAIO FALIRO , ATHENS
This staff canteen for a shipping company goes against the grain. Rather than the predictable slick aesthetic and expensive finishing associated with shipping corporations, we opted for a light, playful scheme using simple materials such as plywood, exposed concrete and metro tiles. Shades of blush and raspberry were chosen to complement the cherry red windows and door frames. The open kitchen and communal seating encourage interaction – a space for high-fliers in a fast-paced industry to decompress and socialise.
