KIZIS STUDIO – ARCHITECTS AND DESIGNERS goes on the 5th decade of constant professional activity, carrying out work which covers a broad range of services; public buildings, housing complexes, residential and office buildings, factories, contemporary interventions and extensions to historic buildings, refurbishment and restoration of monuments.
 
The practice is directed by Yannis Kizis – professor at the National Technical University of Athens, in partnership with Costandis Kizis, (architect NTUA, MSc Columbia University, PhD AA). The office as it stands today is joined by Marina Raftopoulou and Thymis Dougkas, valuable and experienced architects and collaborators for more than a decade. The team was recently expanded when Spyros Kizis, product designer, joined us, and extended the object of the practice to the fields of product, furniture and interior design.
 
In this short overview we have chosen to present fourteen architectural projects, ten of which are built and five of which were awarded in architectural competitions.

Νίκος Κτενάς (1960-2022): "Η αρχιτεκτονική είναι έρευνα της ανθρώπινης ύπαρξης, το πώς θα υπάρξει ζωή σε μια επιλεγμένη τοποθεσία. Το να ζούμε καλύτερα σημαίνει να είμαστε ανοικτοί στην ανανέωση και την εξέλιξη."
