The practice was founded by the architect Angelos Ph. Savvides and the architect Poly Cleovoulou Savvides in 1982. Our work ranges in scale from small houses to large scale architectural projects, as well as from interiors and furniture design to high rise buildings, urban planning, renovation and restoration.
SAVVIDES – ARCHITECTS is a studio which combines theoretical research with practice. Our team is composed of highly creative and passionate architects, dedicated to create spaces that are intended for the human, by using new optical and aesthetical approach. Our aim is to go beyond the structure and to guide the user to discover and feel new spatial experiences.
Through our long experience, the continuous study and research of Theory of Architecture, Philosophy and Evolution of Architecture and Design , as well as the study and comprehension of the dynamism of Symbolic Forms, the architects of the studio are able to design and present projects that become landmarks and points of reference.
With respect to the Place (Culture – Tradition – Climate) and the environment, the practice study and applies new solutions in design. The building sector is an important aspect of sustainable development and we – architects -through an environmental planning contribute in the effort to upgrade the quality of life and achieve sustainability.
Savvides Architects believe that architecture directly influences the quality of our lives and determines who we are. We face the human with his double attribute – Body and Spirit – and want, through our work, to satisfy both his corporeal and his spiritual needs. Considering and respecting the Context, we work for a better Architecture that occurs from a great Concept and contributes to the improvement of the society.
Our aim is to lead the users to discover and live new spatial experiences through the motion into the spaces that we create. With respect to the generations to come and the quality of the environment, we study and we apply innovative solutions in our projects.
The enthusiasm with which we began this course is daily growing and it is impressed in our will to design well and responsibly.
