Architectural office in chania

Client: Private

Location: Fragokastelou 12A, Chania, Greece

Date: 2005

Project architects: Andreas Theodoridis, Lena Chatzitzani, Kostas Kiriakou

The architectural office of Chatzitzani and Kostas Kiriakou worked with Andreas Theodoridis for the design of their new office space in Chania. The site was a very long and narrow piece of land with an old abandoned house on it with access facades to the roads on the two narrow sides. The requirements were to create open plan office spaces and a small apartment.

The key issues that had to be addressed were:

1. Taking advantage of the view towards the sea

2. Taking advantage the dual access to the roads

3. Making an interesting architectural space that is both welcoming and “complex”.
