We are based in Elefsina

Our office is based in Elefsina (Gr: Ελευσίς) an ancient Greek town situated 18km northwest from the centre of Athens. Elefsina has been the site for the Eleusian Mysteries, one of the most important ancient religious events and birthplace of Aeschylous, one of the three great tragedians of antiquity. Since the beginning of 20th century the town has been transformed to a major industrial center. The multilayer chronological past of the city has always been of great influence to our office. Having these aspects in mind, our designs try to give back something equivalent to the history of this place.
