This awarded iconic scheme by Mossessian & Partners, was their first construction upon founding their practice. The main lobby consists of Pietra Serena stone flooring and Black of Edessa (Evenos) marble in internal theatrical wall and the exterior façade of the building’s entrance.

Entering the lobby a huge marble wall feature looms in front of the visitor. The wall feature has a C shape structure, comprising sixteen 40mm thick flat pieces and fifty-five 80mm thick crafted pieces.

This complex stone puzzle feature required thorough work of the 5-axis CNC machine for both aesthetic as well as for precisely manufacturing the fixing holes. Total CNC working time exceeded 460 hours with less than 0.3mm tolerance, yet final touches at joints between pieces, necessitated man-made sculpturing.
