Our company is primarily engaged in private building projects, primarily including residential, office and retail space in Greece and abroad.
Specifically, our team is comprised of a group of architects, civil engineer, mechanical engineer as well as an interior designer whereas we undertake projects from the initial stages up until implementation while also handling all the legal formalities.
In this context, the interior design and decor, whether regarding a residence, retail or office space is always done while taking into account the functionality of the area combined with the best possible living experience that can be offered.
Through the years, our company has given great emphasis to the architectural design and the blending of structures to their surroundings, based largely on bioclimatic principles and passive light and ventilation systems. Furthermore, we specialize in building remodeling as well as in facade alterations, a rather mandatory process as far energy efficiency upgrades are concerned.
