The British Council
Thessaloniki, Greece 1997
The British Council wanted to update their information centre in Greece from a purely book based facility to something more modern. It was also important to allow easy movement between different areas: quiet study, private offices, IT facilities, and workspaces. Our approach was to create a design which suggests a dialogue between new technology and tradition. As visitors access information it is projected onto the back of transparent bookcases – the information becomes an integral part of the architecture.
