We are a small and flexible structure and we wish to remain precisely that. We are in close contact with our clients and personally involved with our projects.
We undertake projects from the first line drawn on a blank piece of paper all the way to handing over the keys, including construction, coordination, orders and crews. We take full responsibility for the project so that you can rest assured.
Even though we are a small team, we belong to a broader network of regular collaborators from different disciplines and skills, which allows us to shift our dynamics depending on the requirements of each project.
We have diverse backgrounds, concerns and interests and we insist on creating narratives with everything that inspires us, be it within or outside the boundaries of architecture. We are always looking for a balance between our experiences from abroad and our love for the Greek element.
Our designs range from furniture and interior spaces to buildings and town squares, discovering unique charms and challenges in each scale.
We wish to be “emergency architects” in the sense that we are not interested in working in ideal conditions. Constraints of space, time, cost or other excite us and push us further. We see boundaries as challenges and contemporary circumstances as opportunities for growth.
We pay attention to the clients’ and sites’ needs and we graft them on to inspiration images and imaginary references in order to produce unexpected idioms and narratives. We don’t reproduce a particular style, but we persist on the requirements of each project until we’ve reached that magical moment when all the pieces fall into place and look like they’ve always been there.
We undertake building permits, the back and forth with administrations and all kinds of “necessary evils” that a construction entails. We have working knowledge of the legislation, the procedures and the building code as well as the ability to operate within these outlines in order to shape our ideas.
Having experienced this in many cases, we firmly believe that in order to realize a project of good quality of any size, a building permit is not enough. Therefore, before going on site we provide construction drawings that include details at various scales, assemblies, materials, specifications, sanitary ware, fixtures, lighting, furniture suggestions etc. We leave nothing to chance.
We prepare an accurate and tight budget that includes all stages of construction, building crews, materials, contingencies (there always are) to which we and the clients, as well as the suppliers and workers, are committed. That way the cost is under control and unpleasant surprises and delays are avoided.
We communicate with all involved parties and fully supervise the construction, ensuring that ideas go from paper to site unscathed. Tight planning saves time, money and energy. We operate with perseverance and responsibility until we hand you over the keys and later we stand by you for anything else you might need.
