Architect RIBA, Part IIAthens, Greece
About me
My formative years were spent between my home city of Athens and the areas of my familial roots; Voiotia and Santorini. In Voiotia, I would often visit the tranquil byzantine monastery of Osios Loukas, with its playful light and my summers were spent exploring the ever changing spectrum of colours of Oia. The combination of the architectural styles, natural colours and creativity that I found in these three places led to the love and interest I have for architecture, design and making that has shaped my career ever since. ​ I graduated from the University of Greenwich with a BA in Architecture. I went on to study in the University of Westminster, where I got my Diploma in Architecture in 2011. During my studies at Westminster I took part in an architecture workshop (SMID), delivered in Seoul, between three universities (Sangmyung University, University of Syracuse and University of Westminster). ​ Before founding my studio, I was a part of Rizos Architects where I worked on several residential projects in Greece. I was also involved in the team that designed and constructed Maidstone Museum in the UK, while working at Hugh Broughton Architects. Whilst working for Heatherwick Studio I was part of the team that designed Google's Mountain View HQ, and also contributed to the final stages of construction of the Nanyang University building. ​ I believe architecture and design, informed by tradition and applied by means of digital technology can enhance spatial experience at all scales. With a grounded attitude towards design and architecture, my aim is to elevate everyday life and the built environment, while adhering to an ethical environmental agenda.
