About The Studio
Amalgama-Architects Studio is an architecture and interior design studio based in Athens since 2015. We work on a wide range of building typologies and projects. Our name derives from our contextual approach which combines the wide experience from the fields of architecture, art and academia. A palimpsest of influences in order to create spatial narratives to the context and aspirations of each project. Light, materials, color and textures are all essential to the creation of form and shape. Throughout architecture and interior design, we aim to build identities informed with a deep understanding regarding every aspect of the project we undertake, renegotiating notions of tradition, locality and contemporary life.
Our philosophy is based on a conceptual approach inspired by poetic vision and rigorous design. The attention to details, and the emotion they can generate in people, is fundamental in our projects. Art, installations, study of formal archetypes, experiments with materials and the dialogue between opposites are some of the themes developed by the Studio.
