Rigas Plastika S.A. headquarters are located in Athens in a 300 sq. metre area.
Our goal was to create a modern, high standard workplace, based on both a human-centered design approach and the selection of quality materials. The planning and space arrangement was initiated after taking into account the shape of the floor plan, the ergonomics and the functional characteristics of the work in each department of the company.
Our decision to move ahead with separating the departments, over an open plan space scenario, was made to ensure employee high concentration ability through low noise levels and provide a greater sense of privacy. The installation of glass partitions and the use of transparency in selected areas ensured a sense of harmony in the space and allowed for natural light to come through.
The materials selected and used are consistent with modern standards for sustainability. This together with the ability for natural ventilation and lighting contribute to a workplace wellbeing and an energy consumption reduction. As such, the workplace manages to balance through a quiet, private, yet not isolated, pleasant and bright setting.
