This building was designed to shelter two different uses, a commercial use (supermarket) on the first level and a cafeteria on the second. Overall, the design of the volumes and spaces is strongly influenced by the modern movement, with the metal structure visible and the walls defining the movements and stops. Thus, large single spaces are created, serving at the same time both of the aforementioned uses.
As the plot provides a panoramic view to the beach of Skala, the second level of the cafeteria was designed to have intense transparency, in contrast to the first, which appears more compact, as it serves both as a bearing element of the upper level and the use it shelters on the lower level as well.
The intense slope of the plot is utilized for the functional independence of the uses. The access to the lower level is from the building’s facade, while the access to the upper level is from the back. For functional reasons, a vertical see-through axis connects the two levels.
The materials used are raw concrete, glass, wood and local stone. Emphasizing therefore in the use of materials in their natural form, enhances at the same time the simplicity and linearity of the geometric shapes being designed.
