" I am process driven in my design approach. My driving force is understanding the requirements of my clients and shaping them into reality. I work across various possible solutions offering the most optimum and relevant final design. I create highly specific architecture that is both useful and poetic delivering projects that are both uniquely appropriate and timelessly valuable."
The nature of my studies and practices has prepared me to undertake most architectural tasks. It involved a great deal of independent research, requiring initiative, self-motivation and proficiency in a wide range of skills. I have graduated from the University of Nicosia, Department of Architecture [ARC] with a BAArch and a (DipArch, 5 Years) Architecture Professional Diploma 5 years. Previously I studied Fine Arts at the University for the Creative Arts, UCA, at Canterbury, Kent United Kingdom where I received BA (Hons) Fine Art. I have worked in Architecture firms in the Washington D.C, United States and Cyprus gaining experience in a wide range of projects. I have a passion enthusiasm and determination to ensure that I make a success of every project.
