Inspired by the stacked shipping container vernacular along the Port of Thessaloniki, Brake Point 26 creates a new urban experience both at the ground and in the sky. Characterized by a mixed-use program within asymmetrically stacked volumes that appear hoisted and suspended while held in motion, Brake Point 26 draws upon its surroundings to establish a dynamic beacon along the Thessaloniki coast. The project aims to achieve a balance of density versus open space, of practical versus inspiration, of structure versus lightness, of built versus natural.
