“We consider that each architectural solution is related to the surrounding and is formed by it in a harmonious or a conflicting or in a totally seperate way. The different features, conditions and challenges of the place is the spark that leads each time to diverse architectural forms. We are interested in how buildings could become integral parts of the landscape. Apart from the forms and how could be developed on each place, equally compelling is how the use of each building contribute sustainably to the environment itself. We seek for the values and the customs, the old aesthetics and the pre-existing memories, the construction techniques and the materials of each place in order to show them up in a modern twist. Wishes and hidden desires of the future users are mixed with project’s background in search of a new perception of space and identity.”
