Petroleum

Think Forward as Architects

Petroleum is a project for the reconstruction and modernization of Ins Petrol office building. The concept of the project is inspired by petroleum, its aesthetic qualities and wide use as a production raw material. Petroleum is an architectural story about oil and its fluid, dynamic, living aesthetics, metaphorically transformed into bespoke furniture, literally used in the structure of the selected materials.

Its liquid imprint can be found in the plan of the project. Around the fluid centre of the building a foyer, a manager office, employees offices, a kitchen office and an archive are situated. The monochrome architecture of the building serves as a calm background for the petroleum shades captivated by the iridescent accents of the interior, the handmade furniture, and the artistic Kourasanit stucco. One of the greatest achievements of the project is the design of the metal shelves and their unique oxidation, recreating the rainbow lustrous iridescence from petroleum spill.
