Medical Instruments Factory at Rafina
This building was designed to house the production and administrative activities of a company producing medical and physiotherapy instruments. The factory comprises a main three-storey volume, occupied by production and storage spaces, and an independent floor of 700 sq. m. –facing the street- which houses the offices, the display area for finished products and the seminar hall.
The design s primary objective was to contrast the two building units. The <> of the office volume and the use of differing materials on the facades contribute to this diversification. The bearing structure of the building follows a 6.80x6.80 m. structural grid. The design (1984-85) has been preceded by two alternative solutions, in which architect George Papaconstantinou had participated. Construction was completed in 1988-89.
