We are a friendly, open-minded team of architects, whose work is inspired by people, culture and context.
We co-create useful places, taking every opportunity to add beauty along the way.
[a]nod creates modern functional spaces, by constantly exploring the field of architecture. Creating a connection between a space and its user, through research and designing, represents our everyday goal.
The experience we have gained enables us to draft proposals that combine innovativeness and perceptiveness, while the variety of tasks that we have undertaken permits us to manage demanding projects of any scale, by assuming all stages of the process, from the initial design all the way to the final completion, placing particular emphasis on detail, as well as on the creative blending of materials.
What We Do
We undertake the management of construction works, covering all stages, from the primary idea to the completion of the work. We supervise every step of the way, starting from developing the main idea, conducting the necessary research and going through the permitting process, all the way to accomplishing the task undertaken. Through collaborations with specialists in related fields we have formed a multi-faceted architectural study team that is engaged not only in designing buildings, interior spaces, objects, but in graphic illustrations as well.
It is our firm conviction that study and construction must be seen as two interlinked, and not separate, stages of work. Each and every proposal we submit is followed up by advice and guidance until the entire process is carried out successfully. We possess all necessary skills and aptitudes so as to achieve the highest return inevery development investment, while enhancing sustainability and never losing track of the budget restrictions.
