arKYtect is a design practice exercising the art of architecture and urban design

at all levels of built environment.


arKYtect provides a meeting platform of an extensive cultural project within the settings of contemporary architecture, while proposing answers to yet unasked questions.


The idea of design as "re-signification" corresponds to the practical production of the project at all levels: from architecture to the city, from restructuring the urban realm to the design of objects.


Our practice has been built upon continuous overlap between different forms of architecture, landscape, interior and urban design.


arKYtect provides private developers, as well as local public institutions with a wide range of services, including urban management and planning, housing, infrastructure and building implementation.
