P+P features on Athens Riviera Journal

“An architecture that is concise but nevertheless narrative, familiar

and at the same time unexpected,

definite but also inventive, is what -we believe- forms a public contribution”


Potiropoulos+Partners is one of Greece’s foremost architectural firms, with studios based in Athens and London and a strong team of highly creative and talented architects and designers, addresses the world market, providing full services in design, supervision, and consulting across the spectrum and in all scales of architecture and urban design.


Recently the Greek architecture office gained international recognition, once again, by winning two international awards: A’ Design Award, Silver 2024 for the Serpentine House at Elliniko in Athens Riviera area and Big See Architecture Award Winner 2024, for Villas in Olive Grove, Navarino Residences at Costa Navarino in Messinia. Potiropoulos+Partners has repeatedly been awarded in competitions and has received many distinctions as a result of consistently producing projects with the aim of advancing architecture worldwide. In 2015, the firm was nominated for the Mies Van der Rohe Awards – European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture. In 2023 Build Magazine declared the firm as “Best Contemporary Architecture Practice 2024 – Greece”.


“The quest for a balanced relationship between built and natural environment remains one of the primary issues of architecture, especially nowadays that scientific progress leads to a way of living, governed by consumer goods and technology symbols. Within this «techno-centric» era, architecture is required to respond with intellectual, sustainable, critical, and sentimental practices and alternative forms of knowledge. By intervening between the physical phenomena and the human being, architecture contributes – both on a pragmatic and semantic level – to the satisfaction of forgotten primordial needs.” says founding partner Dimitris Potiropoulos.


Considering sustainable design as integrated to the overall design, the studio works towards the ecological development of the built environment, as a holistic approach harmoniously integrating new projects into contexts with cultural and historic importance. Several of the projects involve renovation and expansion of historically important structures, including national cultural heritage monuments. The studio’s work also includes several nationally significant projects for Greece.
