OOAK is a Greek-Swedish architecture studio driven by Maria Papafigou and Johan Annerhed. Small in size, the office works with projects of different scales in a broad variety of environments around the globe, sensitively approaching each project in the context of its own conditions and needs.
We aim to create one of a kind projects with distinct identities. Characteristics such as program, physical and cultural context, climate and people are specific attributes that often are the driving forces for the design process. We strive for an identity of the project, not the practice.

Block722 is an Athens-based architecture studio, founded in 2009 by architect Sotiris Tsergas and interior designer Katja Margaritoglou.
The team combines Greek and Scandinavian heritage, as well as interdisciplinary experience, and creates work that feels confident, natural, and timeless. The studio undertakes a variety of work, from residential to commercial and hospitality, managing in-house all stages of architectural development, from concept design to construction and delivery.
Solutions always incorporate a focus on quality materials, a crafts-based approach and collaborations with local artisans and artists that interpret the Mediterranean spirit and traditions for the 21st century.
An architectural ethos that places a sense of balance at its heart is among this boutique, yet dynamic practice’s guiding principles. At the same time, Block722’s design solutions are strongly led by each project’s contextual needs and the client’s brief.
As a result, the studio has won several high-profile awards and has been featured widely in Greek and international media, such as Wallpaper*, ELLE Décor France, Cote Sud, RUM and Dezeen, AD magazine.
Created based on the idea of a unity between design and construction. Comprising a team from various professions including architects, civil and electrical engineers, interior designers and project managers. Its aim is to blend modern and traditional design with the highest standards in quality construction through new technology, materials and vintage techniques. Our vision is to provide a complete solution in designing and constructing a bespoke residential or commercial project.
The architectural office and consultancy consists of a team of architects, engineers and aims to provide comprehensive design services, supervision and advice in all types of range and scale of projects architectural. The structure and size of the office enables the design and study of projects very different in both the typology as well as in level of scale. The activities extend from the interior configuration to the study of large scale and fundamentals. The office has participated in the study of residences, condominiums, shopping centers, office buildings, establishments of infrastructure and hotel complexes, among others. At the same time the office deals with landscaping design, both on an urban level, with design squares and open spaces, as well as on the landscape level with the park design. The office has repeatedly been honored with awards in architectural competitions and projects which have been presented in Greece and abroad.
The continued participation of the office in architectural competitions, which coincide with current professional pursuits, formed at our disposal types of experimentation and processing of specific forms and structures. In this way these innovative synthetic possibilities carried into practice and contributed to the advancement of studies and projects of office. We employ the constant evolution of our architecture and language adaptation of the ever-changing needs of modern society.
Aristides Dallas Architecture Studio based in Athens and Tinos, Greece aims at setting greek architecture to new standards. With the use of contemporary techniques and know-how, construction in the Greek landscape is not conventional anymore, but it acquires rigidity, orientation and essence. Bearing always in mind that each architectural project is a synthesis of aesthetics and functionality, and having a full network of professional experts – engineers, material scientists, interior designers, stylists and artists, we carry out projects, which meet our client’s needs, always with respect to the green practices of sustainable architecture.
Besides the architectural firm itself being structured as a team from the very beginning, our idea of ‘team’ also extends beyond what takes place strictly inside the office. Self-evident as it may seem, we are among the ones to be very well aware that there are more people than the architect to be given credit for a successful project. Contractors, other engineers, project managers, construction workers and, last but not least, each individual client and their own vision, are key factors to the coming into being of quality architecture. We will never fall short of time and resources in striving to bring the best out of everyone involved, and in coordinating what we think of as a collective effort, to optimal or sometimes even surprising results.
