Greek architecture studio 314 has recently completed a stunning cofee shop in Athens that, thanks to a couple of green walls installed in the 300 smq site, gives to its guests the impression of being in a outdoor garden. The spaces get sunlight from the openings in the roof and in summer months the metal shades protect from direct sunlight.
Architects used modern furniture such as LC2 sofas to create a retro feeling. The use of natural materials such as wood, cement and rusted metal combined with the concrete sculpture created from Gianni Aspras give an industrial style in the coffee shop. The edifice, an old industrial building got a bioclimatic shading system with perforated metal panels. Pictures of street art and graffiti decorate the walls.
