Architect: Chris Tessas

Design Team / Consultants: Zoe Tzounidou, Yiorgos Taousanis - TAOUSANIS Development & Construction SA

The main architectural intention was the separation of the rooms with furniture and transparent glass walls, instead of solid partitions. This principle has a twofold character, since it fosters communication and collaboration by keeping at the same time the necessary degree of privacy in every office.

Plants contribute to the creation of stilly office atmosphere and white tones of the surfaces and furniture make a serene background, ready to welcome the identity of the company.


The design development aims to ameliorate the workflow of the team, enhance the communication between the company and clients and finally, deliver fineness and quality to the presence of Air China Company in Athens.


The new offices of Air China in Athens are located in a 200m2 property at Syggrou Avenue. The architectural proposal concerned a drastic refurbishment and configuration according to the functional requirements of the company.


The programme focused on creating a spacious layout that confronts the specific needs and characteristics of Air China team. The circulation flow generates a network of subtle hierarchy and a functional zoning.
