With the public increasingly turning to the search for pure and fine food, a new type of grocery store is opening its doors in Plaka, Lassithi, and our ofce, Manousos Leontarakis & Associates, has taken over its design. So we created an environment designed to turn the visit into a unique audiovisual experience, while the style and style of the space is inspired by the small and imaginative groceries of another era, given with a more modern character. Wood and rustic elements are what dominate the space. Our primary goal was to create a welcoming and everyday culinary experience in the store.

Cafe - Snack
At the modern tourist resort of Agia Galini, our ofce Manousos Leontarakis & Associates has been commissioned to design a new cafe-snack bar where it will serve as a meeting point for snacks, cofee or drinks, in a space that stands out for its relaxing atmosphere and great view. We drew elements from the environment and thus gave the space an aesthetic that exudes a familiar, relaxed and boho mood, in which earthy colors and wood prevail, while our goal was to be able to combine luxury with rustic charm and the Mediterranean style.
The team of our ofce Manousos Leontarakis & Associates undertook the redesign but also the expansion of a multi-purpose restaurant, with flavors from the Greek and Cretan tradition. The reason for the "Cretan House", which is located in front of the picturesque port of Sitia and consists of two dining areas, inside and outside the stamp as well as a beautiful children's creation space. The design and decoration of the space has drawn elements from nature itself and its colors, as the main materials used in the space are wood and stone in combination with the warm shades of the tile, thus making the space warm and hospitable to young and old.
Savoudidakis family, known in the field of production and marketing of olive oil and other Cretan products, commissioned our office Manousos Leontarakis & Associates to design its new offices. It was the design of a space that could accommodate the needs of a modern olive oil production, processing and standardization unit. The main synthetic line was the organization of the floor plan of the building on the basis of discrete zones, which could accommodate corresponding functions, the olive oil production plant, the standardization and storage space as well as public and office spaces. Finally, the premise was that the site could function not only as a production unit but also as a center for the promotion of local products, olive oil and the promotion of culture. Thus the spaces that accommodate production and standardization are distinct to the visitor, while at the same time a separate courtyard provides the opportunity for tasting and dining.
HOME STORE KOUZINIKA
Our office Manousos Leontarakis & Associates has been very pleased with the design of the new home store "Kouzinika" in one of the central areas of Heraklion. The store is organized on a total surface of 210m² and our goal was to create a highly functional space, defining the basic movement towards the interior of the shop and the functional areas of the space. At the same time our main concern was the design of a unique atmosphere, based on a contemporary blend of "coarse" elements that refer to a more robust industrial style, blended with more "warm" materials and textures. Wooden shelves, auxiliary benches and glass showcases are designed to better organize and promote products. The palette of materials is complemented by the special design of the cashier, the investment and the installation of green tiles. The large wooden structure that defines the entrance of the shop stands out. Finally, the use of the company logo as an inscription adds a pleasant touch to the composition game, reflecting in essence the motto of the store.
Increased housing needs in recent years have led to the need to create new accommodation. Our offce Manousos Leontarakis & Associates was pleased to undertake the creation of a new complex of modern rental homes. The purpose is to provide modern and furnished apartments, where it will offer the occupants all the comforts and facilities of a hotel, creating an ideal way of life. So our goal is to create a unique environment, tailored to the needs of its tenants.
