The Office

OFFICETWENTYFIVEARCHITECTS is a Greek architectural practice based in Greece (Thessaloniki, Athens, Ierapetra Crete) in Germany (Dusseldorf) and in UK(London), operating within the fields of architecture, design and development. The office was set in Thessaloniki (Greece) in 2003 by architects Antonis Perpatidis, Thanasis Chrysomallis and Manolis Vourakis.

OFFICETWENTYFIVEARCHITECTS architecture emerges out of careful analysis of how contemporary life constantly evolves and changes. The practice operates in a project-oriented network structure, which allows for brainstorming and discussion in a team environment. This process allows an idea to be born and maintained through the refinement of each work stage. OFFICETWENTYFIVEARCHITECTS believes that all projects regardless of their size and type have to follow an innovative design approach aiming at the originality and freshness of the initial idea.

The variety of projects that the practice undertakes varies in size and type but is always accomplished in the highest quality and the best possible timeframe with respect to the aesthetics of each work.

A team of twenty architects, designers and staff all members of O25 are organized into teams headed by project architects. Based on the scope of the work in different phases designers and specialists will be added to the team.

The practice has to date been awarded with competition prizes , distinctions and honorable mentions more than 20 times since 2003 and have accomplished more than 250 buildings of all types in more than 10 countries. OFFICETWENTYFIVE ARCHITECTS continue their architectural journey with the same enthusiasm for more than 10 years.
