The new Embassy of Norway
A modern, professional and functional environment was requested to the architects for the new Embassy of Norway in Athens, while seeking at the same time a recognizable norwegian identity, reflecting the norwegian character. This project was implemented around the main concept of light. In order to serve that purpose, the 1:10 partition system was selected because it offers the maximum possible transparency, achieving horizontal communication between the offices and the other spaces, introducing daylight and reinforcing the sense of continuity. Likewise, the crystaline structure of 2tec2's Lustre flooring was selected to strengthen this effect since it has the ability to reflect light in a different way, depending on the angle of incidence, while it also fits perfectly in the natural environment of the norwegian landscape.
