Tombazis Associates were founded in 1963 by Alexandros Tombazis. Over the past five decades the practice has designed buildings of almost every type and scale, primarily in Greece, but also in Portugal, the Netherlands, Bulgaria, Romania, Ukraine, Cyprus, the United Arab Emirates, Oman and China.
Coordinated by a senior architect, a highly motivated team is assigned to each project from the conceptual stage until completion. This ensures personal interest, continuity of thought and reliability of services. We work closely with the client and with other relevant engineering disciplines, as we firmly believe that architecture is a product of dialogue and collaboration.
A.N. Tombazis & Associates approach design in a holistic way, drawing inspiration from all elements of which architecture is composed: place, climate, history, culture, function, sustainability, social considerations, beauty, technique. Their guiding principle is less is beautiful, “less” implying a responsible and knowledgeable judgment of what is necessary in each case. It is this economy of means, energy, cost or aesthetics which lends an inner beauty to design.
Many of their commissions are a result of design competitions, while a number of projects, Navarino Dunes in particular, have received prestigious environmental and design awards.
