Archaelogical Museum of Pella
The relation of nature and building, topography and architecture, in the case of the New Archaeological Museum of Pella has stood into two components: the integration inside the archaeological site and the emergence of the Hellenistic Pella.
The current landscape, viewed from the air or on foot, can capture the historical references of ancient and modern Greece, as a complexity of historical levels, leaving each of them their own footprint. The museum has public spaces (entrance, cloakroom, bar, media room), an exhibition area of 1500.00 m2 with an atrium, a multipurpose hall for 120 persons, administrative offices, labs, archives, storage and E/M areas. The landscape around it organises the access to the archaeological site and the city of Pella.

C-19 Residential Tower Abu Dhabi, UAE
The C-19 Tower is a residential building and its residential character is the dominant element of its design. In contrast to its rectangular podium, the upper part of the building swirls as an elegant structure with light colours and a soft curvilinear geometry that smoothens the apparent building mass. The Tower creates a unique vertical residential landscape that completes the image of the district, enriches the skyline and participates in the development of a clear identity to the site. The basis of the building, the podium, houses the entrance, the naturally ventilated parking spaces, and retail spaces on both sides.
The residential tower that stands on top of the podium has a total of 22 floors and houses 200 apartment and duplexes. The total of the housing is wrapped with a series of cantilever balconies that act as the selfshading element for the tower, supporting the extroverted residential character of the Tower, which swivels above the public realm seeking connections and offering fine views of the waterfront and the cityscape.
The desire of the owners is a modern building, which will fully meet the requirements in the areas of construction, grading, storage and places for employees and management. The concept of this building is the basic separation of the industrial plant area as a rectangle, while the areas of office administration as a single free-form area (piano tail). The main principle is to exploit fully the allowable coverage of the land, so that the total number of facilities required are on the ground floor.
