Since 2006, Elina Drossou is the founder and leading architect of dARCHstudio, an architecture practice with offices in Athens and Rhodes. dARCHstudio‘s research and practice answer to all levels of scales – from urban planning to interior design and private villas. Through a unique for every project design process, and with common denominators being creativeness, innovativeness, interaction and experimentation, we focus on the search of new spatial experiences and aim to deliver projects with their distinct identity, far away from all expectations.
A substantial part of the work has taken part in architectural competitions , presented in international group exhibitions (Green Design Festival 2010 Athens, «Carton Plein» Paris, Salone del Mobile Milano, Biennale of Young Greek Architects 2012 and 2018, Οpen House 2019) and published in more than fifty international architecture books and world known design magazines.
Recently, one of our projects “Optician Store Johnnie Rousso” has been selected for the BIG SEE INTERIOR DESIGN AWARDS 2019, in Slovenia. It has also been nominated for the best project (Grand Prix) in the category “retail”.
