WE SHOULD ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT ARCHITECTURE IS THE PRODUCT OF HISTORICAL PROGRESSION AND HISTORY IS A PERENNIAL CREATION. BUT CREATION MEANS DIFFERENTIATION.

“NO PLACE”The issue of January-February 2016 of the architecture magazine “ek-Architecture plus Design” presents the proposal of our practice entitled “Vertical Living”. This particular synthetic approach – as a research study – provides the opportunity to explore possible spatial relationships and geometric proportions that can be embedded in the architectural design through dynamic organization systems. The proposal seeks to extend the field of boundaries and links between building/site, building/landscape, structure/form, indoor/outdoor space.

OUR FIRM IS DYNAMICALLY EXPANDING IN THE FIELD OF TOURISM AND LEISUREOver the past few years, our firm increasingly broadens its activity in Greece and abroad in the field of tourism, leisure and their subsequent uses.

FLISVOS MARINA, ANOTHER INTERNATIONAL DISTINCTIONOnce again, Flisvos Marina, a project of our firm with regard to architectural design, received international recognition.

Flisvos Marina, has been already awarded with five (5) gold anchors, obtaining the highest rating at the Gold Anchor Award Scheme program of the British Marine Federation, as well as with the distinction “Clean Marina” (Clean Marinas Programme) from the International Council of Marine Industry Associations (ICOMIA) after relevant evaluation.
EK MAGAZINE – ANNIVERSARY EDITION, SEPTEMBER 2015The anniversary edition of September 2015, on the occasion of the completion of 20 years of architecture through EK Magazine, includes the utopian project “Floating Skyscrapers” of our firm. The proposal comprises three buildings of equal height, composed of individual modules that are arranged in order to slide one on the top of another. A glass surface/base connects the three volumes which give the impression that are floating in the water. A motive for this design conception was the notion of “solitary waves”, which are transformed constantly due to sudden changes in the bottom of the sea. These water forms come together and move as a ripple in order to divide again and return to their previous state. This process indicates the presence of a type of organic “memory”. This particular approach provided the opportunity to explore new potential relationships and ratios, which can be imported in architectural design through other, more dynamic organization systems.
OUR RESPONSE TO AN INCREASINGLY GLOBALISED MARKETPLACEIn direct response to an increasingly globalised marketplace, Potiropoulos+Partners intensifies its actions in order to expand its activities in new markets outside Greece. Our global reach strategy is based on three “wagons”: Our Athens based prominent architectural practice, our subsidiary firm Active Grids Ltd. in London, and Quadrant Consulting Group, in which we are founding member and main partner. Quadrant is an independent consortium of designers, planners, engineers and technical specialists, which offers a broad range of professional services. In this context, we are in discussion with foreign architectural and consulting practices exploring partnership possibilities outside and inside Greece, while an agreement has already been reached with one of them. Through our cooperations, we will ensure that Potiropoulos+Partners is the exemplary architect of choice for clients fusing international design quality with local service delivery.
