Bioclimatic premises



APIVITA’s new premises are aligned with the company’s philosophy and values and stand as a true-to-life symbol of sustainability, innovation and a groundbreaking interlinking of the workplace and natural environment. They are located at the Markopoulo Industrial Park, Attica, Greece, in an area that was once an olive grove.

The key feature in the central atrium is an olive tree, which had been there before the building’s construction and was replanted in its original position after the premises were completed. Its presence is a universal symbol of peace, victory, wisdom, serenity, protection and fertility.

A space for interactive contact with Greek biodiversity surrounds and complements the factory – a miniature of the company’s sources of inspiration: a small botanical garden (a member of the International Network of Botanical Gardens) with 200 species from the Greek native flora, beekeeping premises open to visitors, and a maze of rosemary and lavender plants which invite us to recharge our energy levels and perceive the uniqueness of the company’s values.

A natural extension to the production unit, the water treatment complex processes the water used as a primary raw material in the company’s production. By employing the most advanced treatment methods (double-pass osmosis) the company uses super-purified water with a conductivity of 0.6 μS/cm.

The building’s design and construction was founded on the following principles:

Simplicity, aesthetics and functionality Natural lighting and ventilation Unhindered contact of people in the building with the surrounding environment Respect for natural resources and local biodiversity Bioclimatic Design Reduced ecological footprint Thermal and visual comfort Use of recyclable, natural and ecological Greek building materials.

For the management of natural resources, we used:

  1. A geothermal energy system
  2. Photovoltaic power systems
  3. A rainwater tank, where water from the building and from the environment is gathered, to be used for watering.
  4. Biological waste treatment
  5. Green roofs/balconies on the first and second floors
  6. Extensive planting of the surrounding area (5.000 plants and 200 different species) with aromatic and medicinal Greek plants, fruit trees and local native species.
