Sotiris Anifantis (Athens 1973) was trained as an architect at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and holds a Master’s degree in Urban Design from the Bartlett School of Architect, where he studied as a grant holder of the Greek state. After collaborating with Giannis Anifantis on several awarded projects, he established A2 Architects in 2008. The Athens based studio works around two pillars. Residential and commercial spaces, creating narratives tailored to client’s needs. In particular, the attention to the individual needs of well-known brands led to A2 Architects being assigned during the last ten years numerous accounts with demanding and big scale projects.
The philosophy of A2 Architects emphasizes on the elements of each project that give it a unique character. Simplicity in forms is combined with a thoughtful and experimental use of materials, based on advanced construction detailing. The studio always highlights the coexistence of the old with new, and the connection between inside and outside. Projects of A2 Architects have been widely published, awarded and exhibited.
