Minas Kosmidis

The studio undertakes architecture and interior design projects both residential and commercial all over Greece and abroad. During the last years the studio has created a broad and diversified portfolio in the fields of private housing, hospitality, retail, and more importantly in the sector of food and beverage. Using the abstraction, the neatness of lines, the clarity, the transparency, the symmetry, the flow, the balance of volumes, the elements of nature and the light as our tools, we find inspiration in order to create unique projects, which combine functionality as well as superior aesthetics and originality.

In our studio, every team member is always giving their best trying above all to fulfill the client’s expectations and also stretch our own limits as architects to the maximum and move at least one step forward each time. When we are asked to describe our studio’s philosophy in a single phrase, we think of Charles Eames’ quote: “The details are not the details. They make the design”. We strongly believe that not only the general concept and its implementation but also the details (the soft design) of our projects are a fundamental element for the success and originality of the outcome. After all, the emphasis on the details, not only during the construction stage but more importantly during the concept development process provides added value to any project. As a general rule for us each new project must be treated separately, as a new exercise, as a problem to be solved, or as a game we have to play not necessarily having victory in mind but more importantly trying enjoy the process and trying to improve every time.
