ABOUT US

We are based on collective work and shared knowledge

Approach

NAMA architects are an Athens-based architectural office that aims to create bespoke living spaces where neither form nor function follows one another. Via the architectural design process, we try to achieve a high level of quality in design and materials, while keeping a low cost in construction. Sustainable and energy efficient solutions are an integral part of our design process. Hence, we create low carbon footprint constructions that ensure to its inhabitants a healthier life.

We are of the opinion that architecture can be memorable even if it’s not monumental. That's why we assert that the anonymous marvels of architecture made by local craftsmen all over the world, who have deeply enhanced the characteristics of their land and their environment, are exemplary and always up-to-date. We believe architecture should primarily serve the physical and spiritual needs of people and communities, not their status quo.

We keep an open mind and learn new things everyday!
