philosophy

SIMBIOSI Architects is an international office of architecture, founded in 2007. During these years established itself as a leading practice with international teams of architects, urban designers, landscape architects and industrial engineers. Simbiosi Architects' main office is based in the London (UK), and has two other offices, in Athens (Greece) and in Nuoro (Sardinia-Italy).
With a multi-disciplinary approach to complex design issues, Simbiosi Architects develops concepts and visions for large and small-scale planning and design issues that address global or private issues.
Working on an international level from its start, Simbiosi Architects developed projects mostly around Italy and Greece but keeping always a contact with the rest of Europe. The office gained  recognition with projects such as – competition “Prat'zas de Janas” concerning the re-qualification of 18 spots in the city center of Nuoro (ITA), the competition for the design of the new city hall of Paratico (ITA) and the competition for the redevelopment of the city hall of San Felice sul Panaro (ITA).
Simbiosi Architects approaches the production of artificial, nature and tradition in SIMBIOSI (symbiosis). We act with an artifact being a part of a landscape, whether natural or artificial, keeping in consideration the  traditions that confers identity and, therefore, understand the need for creating symbols in the production of a new landscape.
