Highlights

The Hellenic Institute of Architecture, within its mission of promoting contemporary Greek architecture, organizes the 10th Biennale of Young Greek Architects. With great pleasure, we will participate to the event, since our project eXeliosis has been selected, with a special distinction, by the jury. (Due to Covid -19 restrictions, new dates are waiting to be announced.)

A major characteristic of our design approach is the light and shadows game that derives from the dialogue between the Greek landscape, the materials, and the architectural elements that we use (atrium, skylight, the structure itself).  Natural light tends to create space through the shadows that cover parts of the structure’s volume. As a result, light is a means of the construction process.

As a philosophy, we emphasize the authenticity of the design by using materials that serve the needs of the structure and at the same time adapt to the context of a specific environment. The materials we choose in combination with the professional detailing complement the form, render the experience of the user original, activates the senses of the user and underlines the ambiance of the space.   

We are immensely proud to announce that our Project ‘oLive’ (Private Residence within Industrial shell) has been selected for the 9nth Biennale of young Greek architects. The Biennale accepts entries by licensed architects, up to 45 years of age and aims to collect a representative sample of the projects of Greek architects, present new creators, and exchange views on the development of architectural thought and production of architectural work in Greece.

A restored structure is a structure that carries several historical elements that refers to the people, the place, the architecture itself. Industrial buildings in Greece, are in abundance and are part of the country’s cultural heritage. With respect to the initial architectural form and the imprint of time, on our recent project oLive, we aim to rescue an old olive mill and showcase its original character through a contemporary view that corresponds to modern life.  

Each architectural creation represents toil, represents an effort. One ought to respect each architectural creation and those who inherit it are charged with its safekeeping. The reuse of old shells and the interventions on existing buildings, ought to serve the original style with consistency, while ensuring that new needs are met. Whichever intervention may be required, however, should be made respectfully and with consideration to humanity, since Architecture is above all humane.
