Located on a relatively small peri-urban site along the disused Athens-Lavrion railway line, the Lavipharm facility was implemented in two phases, nearly ten years apart.
Its 5300m2 total building area consists primarily of pharmaceutical and cosmetics manufacturing areas supported by laboratories and a warehouse. Office and administration space complete the layouts.
As many as feasible of the olive trees that were existing on the site were preserved. Some of them are large and imposing and have become an integral part of the architectural composition. This becomes particularly evident as one approaches the gate house and views the pharmaceutical plant through a front “screen” of olive trees.
Blue is the only colour, other than white, that has been used externally. Blue has been discreetly “sprinkled” on the façades of the main building and also on ancillary buildings, so as to uniformly highlight Lavipharm's corporate identity as expressed through its signature blue logo.
