PROJECT DESCRIPTION 

CARPO STORE, ΚΙFISIA

Carpo stores combine the sale of freshly baked nuts and dried fruits with freshly grinded coffee and handmade chocolate.

The creation of bigger seating area and loft, differentiates the new store from the previous ones, and is organized in a total area of 182,00t.m

The construction of a vertical sliding frame on the face of the store and of an exterior standing counter, interconnects the coffee zone with the public area and defines the entry, the basic movement towards the interior of the store and the functional areas of the site. This standing counter, which was a trademark in previous stores here is differentiated and is constructed from green marble from Tinos with a unique shape.

Natural materials and earthy colors were chosen to create a cozy atmosphere and the sense of familiarity. The wooden shelves, the coffee counter with marble and wood, the glass show case for the pans filled with nuts, all were designed for the best organization and display of products. Mounted system with spotlights on tracks, highlight the products, and point-suspension lamps emphasize details and give a special character.

The seating area at hte first floor of the store gives a cozy feeling, aided by the use of natural materials such as wood, plants and the choices of tables and chairs. A new entry is the private seating area with unique furniture with warm colours and materials.

On the façade, the large circular light (that was a special construction), the standing counter and the wooden entrance, balance with the rest components.

The essential packaging materials (cans, boxes, bags, sacks etc.) were used as parts of the scenery and decoration.
