about studio thanasis

Studio Thanasis is an architecture practice specialising in cultural and residential projects.

The practice was set up by Thanasis Ikonomou in 2020 as a succession to his year long sabbatical where he explored landscape and urbanism within smaller communities through research and collaborative projects across Europe.

The practice focuses on custom, site specific design solutions; exploring craftsmanship, relationships between art & architecture and the investigation of intimacy in architecture and urbanism.

about our space

In 2023, Studio Thanasis set up the space 567 in the center of Athens. The space occupies a groundfloor storefront right off of Alexandras Steet, two blocks from the central park Pedion tou Areous.

The space welcomes guest architects and collaborators to share experiences and build a network of designers. The name references its dimension. Six meters wide, seven meters deep and five meters height. It is 75 meters square in total (which include an upper mezzanine). Its small scale opens up a conversation about size and explore possibilities within a small space. The smallness of the space forces us to be clever with the space planning and the close proximity of one designer with the other helps create strong bonds between them.
