Supermarket in Athens | KLab architecture

001

Thanopoulos supermarket is at the northern suburbs of Athens and is a family business that owns in the same area two more supermarkets, a bit smaller. It was always a high end supermarket brand with huge variety of sophisticated imported goods which are unlikely to be found in other supermarkets in Athens.

During the economic crisis the supermarkets showed a decrease on the average of the money spend per customer. Although new smaller supermarkets opened in the area, as a reaction on the new status qvo, the owners found the economic crisis as an opportunity to reorganize their stores and change through design their philosophy and their image.
