The building housing the ‘Kitchen Bar’ is located at the junction of Varnali and Kanatsouli Street in Halandri, Athens. The design of a concept, implementing a corner plot, is always a challenge for the designer, especially when it comes to a project which in fact converses with the public space of the city.
The placement of the building to the side and rear boundary forms an "L" shape leaving the corner part of the site free. This provision allows the building to "open up" to the city, creating a direct visual contact with it and allowing the formation of a "dialogue." Four out of six building facades open up to the street creating a square, a new "public" space. In this way, Varnali Street links this newly formed square to the nearby Dourou square, enriching the urban fabric with new events.
