Gold Lemons

Architectral Design and Constructio: Antistixis Architects

Location, Kourtesi, Greece
Under Construction

Located in the Kourtesi area of Greece, our newly designed packaging plant for lemons is a sleek and modern industrial building. With a total area of 600 square meters, the building is constructed with dark gray metal panels and aluminum openings, giving it a strong and industrial appearance. The use of dark gray color on the exterior allows the building to blend in with its surroundings, while the aluminum openings create a contrast and add depth to the facade.

To add a touch of liveliness and vibrancy, we have incorporated the use of bold yellow color on all the signage, which contrasts beautifully with the dark gray metal panels. This adds a pop of color to the otherwise monochromatic color scheme, and reinforces the building’s purpose – to package lemons.

One of the key features of the building is its functional design. The two freezing chambers where the lemons will be stored are located at the rear of the building, with easy access for the workers. The production unit is designed to be ergonomic, ensuring that the employees can work efficiently and comfortably. To ensure that employees have all the necessary amenities, we have incorporated a kitchen, changing rooms, and toilets into the design.

The front of the building is separated into two parts – the selling area and the reception area. The selling area is designed to be inviting and showcases the packaged lemons, while the reception area features a concrete desk and is designed in a minimalist style with a color palette of gray, black, white, and yellow.

To enhance the building’s functionality, we have designed a lighting system that can respond to the needs of the plant, providing adequate light for workers to carry out their tasks. The building’s first floor houses an account office, which is separated from the rest of the building by a glass working room, providing the owner with a private area to hold consultations.

Overall, the packaging plant for lemons designed by our office is a functional and modern industrial building. Its use of dark gray metal panels and aluminum openings creates a strong and industrial appearance, while the incorporation of bold yellow color on the signage adds a touch of vibrancy. The functional design ensures that the building is practical for the workers, and the lighting system is designed to enhance the efficiency of the plant.
