Archipneuma is an architectural practice based in Athens, founded by Dimitris Tilelis, Kostis Zymatouras, Georgios Xatzigeorgiou , Vicenzo Di Giansante and Thanos iliodromitis.
Archipneuma combines craft, innovation and attention to detail.
Our design approach combines a contemporary aesthetic with a knowledge of materials and a celebration of craft. We approach all our projects with these same values, whether they are family home, an exhibition design, or an art installation. Our clients include private individuals, families and companies across Greece.
Our approach is driven by the context of a site, responding to the urban environment and informed by the surrounding landscape, and draws on our experience of working with clients and studios both in Greece and overseas.
We work closely with each of our clients to produce work that makes a positive contribution to the built environment, and to the wider urban landscape. The studio approaches all its work using a common set of values, with projects undertaken in a spirit of collaboration with our clients and design teams.
As an architectural practice, we advocate for the creation of spaces and buildings in response to their inhabitants and environments. The tactile and atmospheric qualities of a project are key interests of our studio, and we are committed to values of sustainability and long-term thinking within our work.
Our studio believes in the process of making models, sketching, and testing to explore and communicate our designs. We seek to produce work that is both refined and robust, crafted and contemporary.
As a studio we are inquisitive and collaborative, interested in exploring ideas together with our clients and collaborators. We bring our wide range of experiences to the conceptual design process, relying on a process of testing and feedback to guide our projects.
We believe that we have an obligation as designers working in the public realm to create buildings that are durable, generous and welcoming. Our aim is to create architecture that enhances our domestic, civic and natural environments, and to work with others that share these goals.
