Hangar C is one of the three listed aircraft hangars of the Hellenic Air Force at the Ellinikon area, in use back in the 60s when the Athens International airport was functioning at the area. Nowadays they have been declared as Modern Architectural Monuments by the Greek Ministry of Culture, for their importance and unique mechanical structure. The restoration of the Hangar C, in less than twelve months, one of the most visually impressive and technologically innovative visitor centres in the world, with an area of 4,800m² and five thematic zones.

The lighting scheme to the Hangar’s interior accentuates the structure in a bold and dramatic manner, whilst being discreetly integrated to the building’s architectural fabric in a respectful and completely reversible manner. The impressive lighting creates an inviting, friendly environment in which the guests can explore and discover the new Ellinikon developments by Lamda.

At the same time, the exterior lighting scheme reveals the architectural volume of the Hangar, highlighting the materiality and texture of the building. Architectural lighting fixtures are integrated to the lighting masts where possible or otherwise concealed from normal view.

All lighting is controlled by a sophisticated architectural lighting control system, ensuring maximum flexibility and allowing special events and functions.
