Awarded Projects:

El Centro – The story of a staircase

The complete reconstruction of a listed building in Alsos Kifisias in Athens was performed in order to host “El Centro”, a cultural venue for the promotion of Spanish language and culture. The goal of the architect, Angeles Mira, was to give the building a Spanish, Mediterranean and Latin soul at the same time. The central and emblematic element of the venue is the special staircase which comprises the axis of the whole building and is an ornament of the work, inspired from a Spanish guitar — which connects the impressive reception with the upper floors, where teaching halls and the children’s library are hosted. A work of high requirements which became a meeting point for the Spanish-speaking community.

House in Glyfada – A “live” plan

The apartment in Glyfada constitutes a contemporary house where a brilliant idea at its core offered the space versatility, based on its user’s needs. By integrating movement in part of the space along a certain axis, the space’s potential was multiplied by the way functions are positioned each time. The circular construction, which is both a bookcase and a TV setup, revolves in a way that connects or separates the living room from the bedroom. Curved forms create a fluidity at the borders of different areas, while all the basic functions of the apartment may be concealed in a continuous partitive wood-coated wall.

Baba Ghanoush – One space, two parallel zones

Baba Ghanoush is a restaurant in a typical Athenian apartment building of the 1970s at the center of Pangrati. Despite its small size, it handles its architecture in a quite clever way. Two distinct zones separate the service space from the preparation space, offering a better experience to its visitors.

Green Suites 5* Boutique Hotel – Innovative. Futuristic. Eco-luxury

Green Suites 5* Boutique Hotel constitutes the sole hotel constructed and delivered in Athens of 2020. It stands out for its special architecture, signed by Plaini and Karahalios Architects.

Despite the high construction requirements, the building was completed in just 9 months. It follows all the contemporary energy standards, while its eminent sculptural design with the carefully chosen materials and lighting, offers a unique accommodation experience to the guest.

The building’s exterior view, though based on the forms of modern signature architecture, delivers its own visual message with total respect to the general aesthetics of the area.

House in Glyfada – A multifunctional space to live and work

The shifting house which adapts to the needs of the user, stands as a modern multifunctional space. Fluid shapes and interesting volumes create the furnishing and the equipment of the apartment, converting a 1970s home into a modern apartment, suitable not only to live but also to work in. Volumes that open and close uncover individual functions, achieving a distinctive space of multiple functions that can be turned into a simple storage space, an office space or a sleeping space.
