The company headquarters - including laboratories, offices and storage spaces - functions as an integrated unit which processes and promotes optical lenses. Located on the Hymettus Ringroad at its junction with the Attica Highway, it is a remodeled 30m x 50m industrial building.

Only the structure of the original building was retained and reinforced. The new zoning law along the peripheral road prohibited any extension. Thus, only a floor was added on top of the northern side of the original structure, while a new entrance was created in recess on the east façade.

The façade itself combines a curtain wall with marble surfaces, perforated by conventional, human-scale windows.

In the main entrance lobby, a two-storey space was created as a point of reference for all associates. This space is a unifying element for the ground and first floor, around which are situated the laboratory spaces along with storage and circulation areas, as required for the immediate transportation of the product.
