Looking at projects by K-Studio, one can’t help but be amazed by the energy of the light-filled spaces they design. Founded by Dimitris and Konstantinos Karampatakis, the studio creates this kinetic vigour by celebrating the history of the spaces, the architectural traditions of the location, and with a profound understanding of how light plays out in rooms. After completing their studies at the Bartlett, UCL in London and having spent a year working for Will Alsop, Dimitris and Konstantinos Karampatakis returned to Athens and set up K-Studio. The award-winning duo have developed a reputation for their fresh, dynamic approach to architectural interventions.
K-Studio was shortlisted for the 2012 Young Greek Architects Award and part of the Greek Pavilion Exhibition at the Venice Architecture Biennale, 2014.
