Competition 2021: 1st prize
Gross floor area 96.000m2
We are very happy to be part of the team that won the first prize in the international architectural competition for the re-design of the Thessaloniki Conference and Exhibition Park ‘ConfEx Park' in Greece.
The Exhibition centre will be a place of international importance where the upgraded exhibition and conference spaces will attract high quality events and activities. The building and roofs areas become islands of sustainability. They shade the underlying buildings, collect water to irrigate the park, and their photovoltaic surfaces produce energy.
The team includes both international and Greek consultants specialised in different fields who have collaborated successfully to deliver the preliminary design phase. It is a very challenging project, and we are looking forward to starting the next phase.
