This project was designed with the aim of reshaping the outdoor areas of a private house, located in a small village in coastal Arcadia. The basic steps towards a sustainable design, as wished by the owners, have been the right choice of native flora, the enrichment of the surrounding landscape by providing habitat for pollinators and the management of water consumption by choosing drought-tolerant plants and automated irrigation systems.
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.
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 landscape spaces are usually "public" in nature, how could the planning and designing of our landscape spaces cater to these diverse demands, needs and preferences from various group of population? How can we avoid conflicts among the various group of population? 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?
Athens-based studio LandmArch. Architecture introduces a new hotel typology, entitled ‘ZEN MINIMAL LUXURY HOUSING’. Through this smart housing complex project and its conceptual balance between architecture, nature, mind and spirit, they bring into life the meaning of “Zen”, that of being in a total state of focus incorporating a total togetherness of body and mind, thus to say, feeling peaceful and relaxed.
The aim of the proposal is the design of a contemporary, functional and bio climatic public building which accommodates the Region of West Attica Headquarters, in Elefsina. The new complex upgrades the urban landscape of the area while reflecting its multi-dimensional history.
The purpose of this proposal is to create a new green area in Karditsa so that it will become the new landmark destination for both residents and visitors. The connectivity of the park to the urban fabric that respects everybody, prioritizing the pedestrians, the disabled, and the bicycles is another basic element of the design, together with the use of materials and construction methods which are easily achievable and ensure the best energy efficiency, as well as the minimum need for their maintenance.
In LandmArch. we are excited to have been trusted by L’Oréal Hellas S.A. to proceed to the restoration of the outdoor areas of their Logistics' center. The main request of the client has been to re-evaluate the existing planting condition and re-propose a new one, in order to maintain a friendly, "green" environment for their personnel, while at the same time reduce more than 60% the annual costs of water needs. Therefore, our practice proposed local flora in order to use natural sources for a low cost water management.

The restoration of past landscapes can be achieved by using as a medium contemporary technologies, such as the use of three-dimensional holograms. This three-dimensional technology, as a volume-image, will correspond to the initial state of the monuments, which has been split up by the passing of time, so that the visitor will be able to move between a semi natural - semi dreamy landscape, where the boundaries of both material and immaterial world will correlate.
The idea of this new interactive relationship between people and the landscape, in real time and space, is something extremely innovative regarding the new perception of the world, which is under constant change and redefinition, as technological evolution moves constantly on and on.
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.
Proper planning, engineering, and management for sustainable pocket beaches -public and private sand-filled beach cells- has been one of our priorities, since they can assure a long- term coastal stability and a high quality coastal environment.
High quality native plant communities 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 functionality, leisure and carefree outdoor activities and interactive participation will play a crucial role to enrich local tourism industry.
Accessibility will improve local transportation, especially walking. Eco-friendly lighting will add safety and lead the way towards hidden treasures, such as open-air art pavilions, pathways and stand-points viewing the open horizon. Void and dense areas will complete one another in order to add a strong sense of identity.
This site specific project appeared as a design solution for the complete aesthetical and functional makeover of the two most populated public squares of the city.
The aim of this study is to replace the above constructions, which are, now, installed by shopkeepers in cooperation with the competent bodies, with new ones, in order to provide an holistic, sustainable solution and a clear identity to this specific location.
The proposal will add architectural value to the squares, offering at the same time, comfort, a friendly environment, safety and a sustainable solution, so that it can fit harmoniously into the existing landscape, serving the needs of the general improvement of its surroundings.
Our proposal specifies in detail a particular hexagonal-shaped model, covering a total area of about 10.50 sq.m., which less or more copy the vertical shade area of the existing trees of the square.
The hexagonal shape is based on motifs of Byzantine architecture, which is present everywhere you look around the historical town of Arta.
Moreover, this form serves a possible organic expansion or removal of these shades, in case future changes occur on the surface allowed by the municipality to the tenants. All this may happen without reducing their aesthetic value, both individually and as a whole, which has been one of our main purposes from the very beginning.
Finally, this modular-hexagonal form of the shades, plus the specific area covered by them, is facilitating a clear and smooth integration of the existing trees into the overall organic sinthesis, creating a new, harmonic landscape, dialoging with the existing one.
In Athens, a great parade, much different from the others, has taken place. Fuchsia snails, a proper and unique artwork, each one of them carrying their own personality on their back, have filled the streets of the greek capital, in order to declare that their presence is nothing but friendly, since their intention is to sensitize people over their coexistence with all kinds of urban fauna.
“New World Training Ground” is the name of the first authorized parkour training Ground in Greece, located in Neos Kosmos, Athens. Its establishment aims to provide a secure indoor area for people to learn and advance parkour techniques in a safe environment, under the constant supervision of its founder and all qualified trainers.
Commissioned Project, Awarded Project at "Tourism Awards" 2016
This project concerns the modernization of Nemea's basic urban structure which will play a crucial role to the connection of the city with the new Wine Museum. The relationship of the city with its ancient history and mythology, plus the famous PDO wine production "NEMEA AGIORGITIKO" are the basic lines to lead the re-branding concept of the city, in order to turn it into a new wine destination of high quality.
This project is site specific, and aims to provide a unique and luxury shelter to a rare gem collection which decorates unique pieces of jewels. Therefore, LandmArch. Architecture focuses on minimalism, eclecticism, materials of high quality and clean, polygonal lines in order to set a focus on the rare treasure which is hosted in this exhibition hall.
This gem gallery offers comfort and uplifts the senses. Since it is not a common jewelry shop, its main purpose is to exhibit its art pieces in a very precise way. Its minimal architectural and lighting design supports this idea, since it is used as a neutral scenery in order for the clients to focus on the two main show cases.
