Founding Members

 

The architectural firm “ifo studio” is the brainchild of three architects, fellow students at the School of Architecture of the National Technical University of Athens. From the commencement of their studies they were particularly interested in traditional architecture and the protection of monuments. They then collaborated with the Greek Ministry of Culture from where they gained valuable experience which they used in the preparation of designs and supervision in cultural projects aimed at the protection and promotion of cultural heritage.
