Chevellas S.A. was aimed to raise a contemporary office building of 4 floors and 3 basements, over a private plot of 3.200 sq.m. at Kifissos Avenue in Peristeri. Chevellas should accommodate within its new premises the general dealer facilities of CHEVROLET in Greece together with a modern car showroom, an auxiliary underground parking and storage areas for cars.
The design of the building should express the Company’s status and character through a simple, modern and dynamic building structure. The location of the building over a main city highway imposed the necessity for a structure that impresses the person driving by; a building which will be perceived immediately and will be easily accessible.
The building consists of two characteristic, spindle-shaped structures. The ends of these two separate structures are solid walls that configure the two staircases of the side facades. On the roof, the two structures are separated with an illuminated slit all along the building. The building facades are curved and unfolded as a person passes by.
