Minion Mixed Use Development by Konstantina Stella Tsagkaratou

Home > Winners > #146190




DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Minion

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Mixed Use Development

INSPIRATION:
Urban redevelopment of the centre of Athens with emphasis on Patision street that is the only street that visually leads to the Acropolis and some of the most important buildings of Athens are located along its length. The building itself was the most famous shopping mall in Greece before it was destroyed by fire in the 1980s.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Redevelopment of an abandoned retail building in Athens. The proposal is a mix of retail, office and residential units. Each use has its own special feature. The retail has the iconic entrance, the offices have the protruding glass cube meeting room with views of the Parthenon and the residential entrance is located in the central courtyard as a continuation of the adjacent pedestrian street.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The building comprises of 3 distinct functions, commercial, residential, offices. Even though they are distinct, the full height open atrium creates homogeneity. To optimise the operation of the different functions, there are three different entrances to the building, one per function. The design of the atrium is meant to provide privacy, without cutting off the visual connectivity.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project is located in the centre of Athens, Greece, with breath-taking views of the Acropolis.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The structural elements of the building are Concrete and the Glazing is triple for energy efficiency and noise control. The horizontal louvers of the fa├žade are metallic. On the roof and the balconies, there is designated space for vegetation and photovoltaic panels that improve the energy efficiency of the building.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The dimensions of the building are: 58,025m*25,550m*44,622m GBA: 14,977sqm, GLA: 13,657 sqm. Retail and F&B: 6,658 sqm Offices: 4,828 sqm Residential: 3,491 sqm Secondary functions/ back of house: 713 sqm

TAGS:
RETAIL, OFFICE, RESIDENTIAL, COMMERCIAL, COURTYARD, REUSE, MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The design of Minion is part of the architect's research on mixed use developments and the co-existence of different functions. The complexity of the brief resides on the seemingly contradicting needs of retail, offices and residential uses. The architect argues that once the potential issues arising from the mix of these uses are tackled, the above mentioned mix of uses is actually beneficial to the life of the neighbourhood, as it provides life on the urban block during the day and the night.

CHALLENGE:
The biggest challenge during the development of this project was the history of the building and its conversion to a mixed use development, which is a different approach to the original design. The building comprises of 4 independent buildings, one of which has been more damaged by the fire that destroyed it and its structure has been severely compromised. Also, the slabs in one of the buildings are on different heights than the other three, which presented creative challenges that had to be overcome.
