Whitebox Architects is a group of young architects involved in the design of residential and commercial premises, renovations, but also large-scale projects, covering the entire range of architectural, design and manufacturing services, from the initial idea up to the final detailed construction and furniture design.

Created in Athens in 2002 by architects Panos Kokkalidis and Alice Triantafillidou, while in 2006 Anna Drella joined the group.

The approach to each project is unique. Key role throughout the process have the people who will interact with the space and the environment in which it will be implemented, as well as the economic framework, leading every time in original solutions characterized by a clean and contemporary approach.

The team faces each new challenge with enthusiasm to create highly crafted designs and to offer high quality services.

Workshop Dionisis Sotovikis was created in 2004 by AA Architect Dionisis Sotovikis, in Athens, Greece. Since then, it operates as an architectural firm, providing a multitude of services around architecture and construction, interior design, furniture design and visual arts. At the same time, the space functions as a workshop for creativity and development of new ideas in the aforementioned topics, as well as a meeting point, exhibition space and a host for any creative aspect of human activity. Workshop Dionisis Sotovikis has implemented a multitude of projects that vary in scale, type and texture, from hotels and large residential projects, to stores, furniture and reinvented architectural elements. Dionisis Sotovikis and his team are indulging in finding and showcasing, one piece at a time, all the constant points of human reference that remain unaltered and timeless, in order to construct a social vision that will redefine the ethos of modern architecture and it’s true intertemporal and borderless value. HELMET removebg preview   HELMET removebg preview

KLAB architecture (kinetic lab of architecture), was founded in 2001 by Konstantinos Labrinopoulos. It is an international group of highly qualified and motivated architects who seek opportunities to create unique and intriguing urban events. Being a multicultural team, KLAB architecture is able to deal with a diverse field of projects, from large planning schemes to the completion of detailed technical drawings for specialised solutions. Such practice is at the forefront of contemporary international architectural design.

KLAB architecture finds inspiration in the interconnection and juxtaposition of everyday things in life. It combines the ephemeral with the diachronic, the classic with the modern,
natural with artificial, large and small scales, conventional and experimental materials.The aspiration of KLAB architecture has always been: to create as artists and to implement as scientists. Freedom of inspiration, originality in design and strict project implementation are the principles that drive the office’s continuous development.

Everyday research is integral to high-quality innovative and functional design. Every client is unique and poses a new and interesting challenge for the office members, who engage in an active dialogue with the client at every stage of the building process. Every project is tailor-made to the requirements and aspirations of the client.

KLAB architecture aims to produce high-quality architecture that broadens the mind and expands the potential of the architectural practice through unique approaches.
