INSiDE Architects is a full service architecture and interior design practice founded by Christianna Perntetzi in 2015 after 7 years in the design industry. We offer design ideas from initial concept to custom – furnished interiors or undertake specific elements and stages of a project, depending on our client's needs. The creative base of the practice is located in Athens and works with a multidisciplinary team that consists of highly qualified architects, structural engineers, interior designers as well as coordinates with contractors, craftsmen and landscapers.
Our design approach is developed to be collaborative and environmentally sensitive based upon aesthetic and functional criteria, adapted to the site, the brief and the budget of each project.
We focus on the relationship between the building and the surroundings, the balance of volumes, the quality of the light, the combination of different materials by always investigating the creative interaction between detail and overview.
As a general belief for us each project should be unique, and be treated individually giving emphasis to the high architecture quality. We work closely with each client to establish new and better ways with the perception for a whole practical and spatial experience so that space becomes personal. Employing advancement in design, material fittings and construction technology each project for us is a valuable journey, with an enjoyable and challenging process which we improve every time.
