The Structure spans five levels, two basements, three floors, total building area 6.830 τ.μ. (61500 sq.ft).

  • Specifications

    Design Specifications where selected based on the following criteria:

    • Aesthetics – Minimal Design
    • Glass surfaces
    • Natural Lighting and Air circulation
    • Use of natural resources
    • Sustainable Design (LEED certified)
    • Reduction of Environmental Impact of the Building to the surrounding area.
    • Thermal and Visual Comfort

    For the use of Natural Resources the following where utilized :

    1. Geoexchange – Heating and Cooling
    2. Solar Panels
    3. Storm-Water collection for Irrigation
    4. Waste-Water treatment Plant
    5. Planted Roofs
    6. Extensive Landscaping and Planting of Meditteranean Plants.
  • Sustainable Design

    The basis of the Architectural design was to set-up a line of defence of the Building against external environmental factors.

    The main atrium joined by the four storey internal glass facade aid in bringing sunlight to the inside of the building. During Winter air inside the building is heated by sunlight whilst during the Summer the same atrium-faced combo serves as a funnel to dissipate all heated air upwards with proper automatically operated openings at the top of the installation.Additional cooling is achieved during Summer through the use of planted roofs.

    A similar but smaller atrium is used to bring in sunlight for the offices and laboratories.

    At the second floor, a central open roof garden space was created, shielded by winds but allowing office users to be in constant contact with open space – natural light and air.


  • Materials Used

    A significant percentage of the materials used where natural – ecological and recyclable

    Structural Elements of the building :  Reinforced Concrete

    External Walls : Hollow Clay bricks with internal cavity insulation, while the inner layer consisted of insulation and double layered gypsum board.
