The exhibition space “The INTERMIΣΣION” is located in one of the most traditional and industrial neighborhoods of the port of Piraeus. It is placed amongst warehouses and old blacksmiths workshops and it houses a total of 145sqm. On the ground floor there is a central exhibition space of 85sqm, while on the other two floors of the attic there are offices and auxiliary spaces.
Based on the identity of INTERMIΣΣION and the concept of 'WhiteBox' in the artworld, the design is based on clean strict lines with a completely minimalist white background. The space refers to a white canvas in order to highlight and project the works of art.
The architectural composition has been designed in order to create a dialogue between the modern and the traditional. This manifests itself in elements such as the preservation of the facade in its original form, as well as the 100-year-old illuminated wooden roof that contrasts with the white walls. The construction of the staircase from white perforated metal, despite its modern shape, refers to the connection of the local blacksmiths who had an active participation in the construction of the project.
