Architectural study “Aggelis Super market”, Arta
Aggelis supermarket: The concept has been inspired from the image of the city as it emerges, when someone approaches it from the road where lies the famous Arta’s bridge or from the Ionian highway. The amphitheatrical building of housing, the vegetation and volumes that recessed and projecting, create a very strong and distinctive image.
The company is local, offers to the city and is supported by it for 50 years, so there is a physical intimacy in the relationship with her citizen – client. The volumes of the building is like a picture of houses where people live, they experience their daily life with its implications and their living hinges critically on goods that they are supplying from food stores. Among the volumes there are scattered orange trees. This tree is representative of the city of Arta and has contributed significantly to economic growth. Also gives a very special beauty to the landscape.
