Museum of Cycladic Art Cafe by Kois Associated Architects

Home > Winners > #61883


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Museum of Cycladic Art

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Cafe

INSPIRATION:
Museum of Cycladic Art is one of the most important museums in Athens and sole ambassador of the Cycladic civilization and artistic legacy. Our goal was to reveal its identity and expose it to the wider public by transforming it to an urban icon not only visually as a semantic carrier but also functionally by increasing the permeability of the building from the street to the interior.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The light flooded atrium of the cafe is equated with an elaborate suspended shading device. The shader is comprised of thin and deep linear hollow aluminum rectangular profiles which in array form a rectilinear pattern.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The atrium with the cafe and the nearby shop becomes the destination of the route, an oasis of light and vegetation in the interior of a building block. This inner open space building provides for stasis in a state of constant urban kinesis.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in April 2014 in Athens and finished in December 2014 in Athens.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The materials used are: white aluminium shaders, Parian marble, Greek walnut, steel, glass. Canopy is manufactured by Doriki Techniki.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The residential area is about 120m2. The dimensions of the canopy are: width 4.96m x depth 8m x height 1.68m.

TAGS:
light, atrium, luminosity, shading, museum, cafe

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
From the entrance, the visitor can approach the museum shop and the atrium, where the museum cafe is situated. The thinness, the depth and the white color of the elements give to the shading device unique light diffusing properties. The light that passes through is filtered and diffused many times. Solar glare and radiation are avoided and without compromising the luminosity levels.

CHALLENGE:
The facade is open during the museum opening hours letting the interior to act as an extension of the street, and closed when the museum is closing. This periodical movement not only becomes an architectonic event introducing different degrees of access and permeability but also becomes an urban event.
