Kokkinou + Kourkoulas Architects

Our work is based on a common intention of developing the spaces and the presumptions necessary to enjoy every day life and work.Their aim is to contribute to the quality, the atmosphere and the rhythm of life taking place in them. From this point of view, they “pace” the spaces of everyday life taking advantage of the elements of the space and landscape into which they are placed.Basic instruments in order to realize this are the walls-limits; through their modulation, their size and material, organize the “stable scene” and give character and quality to the space. We consider that their laying out is of capital importance because through them we organize the movement, the glaze and the rhythms of everyday life. Between them are constructed open air and roofed “rooms”, connecting the inside to the outside, the light to the shadow, the ground to the sky and thus gaining their character.
