Pantelis Theodorakis

SENIOR ARCHITECT / DESIGNER

Athens, Greece
Was born in Athens, Greece in 1980. My first contact with architecture was in 1996 when I joined the “Agia Paraskevi Institute of Art” for a 2 year course on free-hand and line drawing.

In 1999 I joined the School of Architecture at Portsmouth University in UK where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in architecture (RIBA 1) and continued my studies with a two year Post Graduate Diploma (PGDip) course in architecture at London South Bank University (RIBA 2).

I am an enlisted architect and member of T.E.E. (Scientific Technical Chamber of Greece - I.N.119550).

In the past i have participated in architectural competitions, such as the "International Ideas Competition for the Hellenikon Metropolitan Park and Urban Development" (2nd Prize) with “Antonis Noukakis & Partners Architects” architectural office. I have worked on subjects of public interest as the rehabilitation of the 5th division and creation of the Chania School of Arts, landscape works & beach formation for Chiliadou Plaz, the library for the School of Philosophy of the National and Kapodistrian University, the new 3-class kindergarten at Paros island and other.

In recent years I mostly deal with the design and construction of residential units, hotels, shops and office spaces mainly in the area of Cyclades, Aegina island and Athens as part of the architectural office "Studio 265 Architecture & Building" based in Athens.
