The foundation of Western architecture cannot be told without citing the architectural legacy of Greece. From classical antiquity to today’s built environment, Greek structures and decorations are visible worldwide. Ancient Greek architecture is known for its formalized craft — the Classical orders, spatial scale, and harnessing line and light. This vocabulary has influenced countless architects of later periods, from Vitruvius to today’s contemporary designers. And evidence of Antique architecture can still be appreciated by visiting the countless archeological sites dispersed throughout the Greek mainland and surrounding islands.
After the fall of Constantinople, Ottoman architecture pervaded throughout Greek cities, most notably within new religious construction. Modern architecture eventually manifested in Greece, and influences from figureheads like Le Corbusier were embraced by Greek designers. Although conservatism was always sustained due to the nation’s unstable economic standing. The 20th century also birthed one of the most romanticized aesthetics of contemporary design: the whitewashed seaside home, otherwise known as Cycladic architecture.
Breeding an architectural vocabulary that is innovative, varied, and deeply attuned to the nation’s economic and cultural agenda, architects in Greece today are generating compelling programs (have you heard of the Greek typology ‘yposkafo‘?). Working with complex conditions, budgets, and a profuse history, today’s designers continuously explore through form, scale and material.
With so many architecture firms to choose from, it’s challenging for clients to identify the industry leaders that will be an ideal fit for their project needs. Fortunately, Architizer is able to provide guidance on the top design firms in Greece based on more than a decade of data and industry knowledge.
