Sampatiki Suites 45.jpg

Landscape architecture **** Star Hotel Complex, Sampatiki 


Delivered Project

Perched gracefully atop a hill near Sampatiki in the Peloponnese region of Greece, Sampatiki Suites is a 4-star hotel complex featuring 11 separate suites, luxurious spas, and an infinity pool. Situated on the eastern side of the Peloponnese, Sampatiki is encircled by majestic mountains and picturesque coastlines that stretch to the Myrtoan Gulf and the charming port of Sampatiki. Guests are treated to breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea, providing a serene backdrop for an unforgettable stay. This emerging destination is poised to become a game-changer in the region's hospitality landscape


LandmArch has been selected to participate in the comprehensive analysis, design, and implementation consultancy for approximately 2000 square meters of landscape areas. Working with both hardscape and softscape, our primary goal has been to highlight the genius loci, emphasizing the main entrances, standout viewpoints, open-air activity zones, and waiting areas.


All necessary actions have been taken to sculpt the appropriate topography for optimal facilitation of motor and pedestrian movements, including accessibility for people with disabilities. GEOCELL slope protection systems have been selected to provide excellent erosion protection for slopes through their expandable, strong, and cellular structures. In the hardscape, the extensive use of permeable pavement—such as loose crushed stone, gravel, and grass paving—along with local stone, cast pebble flooring, terrazzo, and stabilized aggregate, results in durable, natural-looking surfaces that require low maintenance. These surfaces combine practicality, safety, weather resistance, and non-slippery properties.


Overall, these features contribute to a welcoming and warm atmosphere with sustainable qualities. In the softscape study, special emphasis has been placed on the selection of native plants to better integrate into the local ecosystem for both aesthetic and functional reasons. These reasons include pollination, ease of supply, plant behavior in the local subsoil, water consumption for irrigation, maintenance, and replacement.

Site specific regeneration of Patras seafront based on Agenda 2030, Greece

Site specific regeneration of Patras seafront based on Agenda 2030


National Competition​

The project aims in having a broader impact in the local urban design, by promoting the application of PARTICIPATORY design and PLACEMAKING processes. Furthermore, its aim is to provide follow-up design solutions which are based on the main principles of Agenda 2030. In other words, the goal is to cultivate a mindset where all stakeholders involved in the area’s urban development work together as a team. In that way, it will be possible to recover from the dysfunctional decision-making practices of the past and their negative impact into public space.

The design proposal for the seafront of Patras is based on environmental, social, economic, technical and aesthetic criteria, in order to express a case-by-case thesis through SITE-SPECIFIC strategies. Finally, through the collaborative and creative process of placemaking, the emotional connections between residents and public space, as well as all provisions for its future MAINTENANCE and management, will be established.

Homogenous Culture and Diverse Population - Three Mills Green Lido Park


Research Project

Globalisation and the advancement of transportation system and connectivity render our cities' population to be more diverse in ethnicity, religion, nationality, ability and thinking. As urban spaces are usually public in nature, how could the planning and implementation of our urban spaces cater to these diverse demands, needs and preferences from various group of population and how can we avoid conflicts among those various groups? How do we plan for more DIVERSITY, rather than homogenous solution due to rural-urban migration? How do we ensure the resilience of our heritage and culture?

Three Mills Green Lido Park is situated in East London between Canning Town, Bromley-by-Bow and WestHam, and has been selected as a meeting and relief point between these three neighborhoods, which are characterized by a MULTICULTURAL population.


Our proposal is to create a LIDO (Urban bio-piscine) as a valuable element in the local environment, offering a range of benefits for both people and nature, as it will serve as a RECREATIONAL space, promoting health, community engagement, and urban aesthetics. On the other hand, it will provide sustainable water management, support BIODIVERSITY, offer chemical-free swimming, and present EDUCATIONAL opportunities. 

Through high design proposals for ACCESSIBILITY, safety and biodiversity maintenance the park satisfies people’s aesthetic needs, consistent with their perceptual sensibilities and expectations. Located where it is easily accessible to all and where it can be seen by potential users, it satisfies people’s desire for places of richness and complexity, while at the same time it provides for SAFETY through lighting, surveillance, visual sequence conditions, and a clear character for entry and boundary limits. The site analysis includes an adequacy of the circulation system to serve the anticipated site development and followed emergency and service vehicle access requirements.

The park’s final aim is to provide options for individuals or groups to become attached to the place and care for it through involvement in design, construction or maintenance; by use for special events; or by temporarily claiming personal spaces within the area.

The utilization of local plant species not only enhances the aesthetics but ensures a cost-effective and environmentally conscious approach to landscaping.

Digital Placemaking

Digital placemaking


Proposal Project* at the Culture Department of Greece

Reviving bygone landscapes finds a contemporary ally in the form of three-dimensional HOLOGRAMS, a cutting-edge technology that serves as a conduit for restoration. Employing this advanced three-dimensional technology, akin to VOLUMETRIC imagery, allows for a faithful recreation of the original state of monuments now fragmented by the passage of time. Visitors, immersed in this semi-natural, semi-dreamlike landscape, find themselves navigating through a realm where the distinctions between the material and immaterial seamlessly intertwine.

This INNOVATIVE approach fosters an interactive relationship between individuals and the landscape, unfolding in real-time and space. The result is a groundbreaking paradigm shift in how people perceive and engage with the world. In this ever-evolving landscape of technological advancement, the concept embraces the constant change and REDEFINITION that characterizes our modern era. The use of holographic RESTORATION not only breathes life into historical landscapes but also challenges traditional notions, introducing a dynamic and transformative way for individuals to connect with the past.

Wujiang East Lake Tai Ecological Tourism Resort


International Competition

Wujiang East Lake Tai Ecological Tourism Resort is planned to become a future landmark in the southeast of Jiangsu Province, that will host almost 500,000 visitors annually, becoming the Most Ecological Charm in Lakeside of Lake Tai. Beach and shoreface nourishment, plus the creation of green "SPONGES" has been one of our priorities, since they can assure a long-term COASTAL STABILITY and a high quality coastal environment. Native plants will attract new flora and fauna to the area, providing them with shelter, food, and breeding grounds. Increasing BIODIVERSITY would support a number of natural ecosystem processes and services like air quality, climate control, water purification, pollination, and aesthetic appeal. Parameters such as WALKABILITY, functionality, leisure and carefree outdoor activities and interactive participation will play a crucial role to enrich local TOURISM industry.

In our pursuit of a harmonious design, we are mindful of water's significance as a precious resource. The design reflects an understanding and appreciation for the delicate balance required to celebrate water as an artistic medium while also acknowledging its vital role in sustaining life. As we refine our design, we carefully integrate sculptural elements that not only aesthetically enrich the space but also contribute to the overall SENSORY EXPERIENCE. Nestled within the heart of a flourishing local bamboo grove, an enchanting ART INSTALLATION comes to life, celebrating the symbiotic relationship between nature, productivity, and human creativity. A carefully curated arrangement of HANDMADE straw discs, embody the skill and dedication of local artisans to master the art of transforming humble materials into objects of both utility and beauty. This living gallery provides a soothing backdrop to the artistic narrative that unfolds and creates an ethereal dance of LIGHT and SHADOW.

Modular Shading System for Municipality of Arta


Commissioned Project

This project emerges as a comprehensive solution for the aesthetic and functional transformation of the city's two most bustling public squares. Departing from the current makeshift constructions collaboratively installed by shopkeepers and local authorities, our objective is to introduce a HOLISTIC and SUSTAINABLE architectural intervention, providing a distinct identity to these vital urban spaces. The proposed design seeks to elevate the squares by offering architectural sophistication while ensuring comfort, safety, and sustainability. The intention is to integrate the new structures into the existing landscape, contributing to the overall enhancement of the surroundings.

Our proposal revolves around a hexagonal-shaped model made of ETFE CUSHIONS, covering approximately 10.50 sq.m., mirroring the vertical shade area of the square's existing trees. Inspired by BYZANTINE ARCHITECTURAL MOTIFS prevalent in the historical town of Arta, this hexagonal form embodies a timeless aesthetic. Beyond its visual appeal, the hexagonal design facilitates future adaptability. It allows for the ORGANIC expansion or removal of shades in response to potential changes permitted by the municipality, ensuring FLEXIBILITY without compromising the aesthetic integrity of each shade unit or the ensemble as a whole—an essential consideration from the project's inception.

In essence, the modular-hexagonal form not only establishes a harmonious integration of the proposed shades with the existing trees but also fosters a dialogue with the surrounding environment. This deliberate synthesis creates a new and COHESIVE URBAN LANDSCAPE, enriching the public squares with a thoughtful blend of history, aesthetics, and functionality. The commissioned project envisions a future where these spaces become VIBRANT HUBS, seamlessly merging contemporary design with the city's historical tapestry.
