About Christos Pavlou Architecture
Our studio – Christos Pavlou architecture studio was founded by Christos Pavlou in 2003 and is based in Nicosia, Cyprus. Although a small studio we do know how to take care of our clients in a very personal and friendly manner. Our practice is focused on housing, single residents, commercial as well as interior architecture.
Our approach – We listen, we search, we learn, we design. We are aware of and sensible to the environment, the land parameters, the specific site views, the climate conditions and the needs of our customers.
Our projects – The designs are distinguished by their formal simplicity, the integration of inside-outside, the contrasting realities and the in-between zones. Studio’s architecture is driven by the need for solving a complex program in a simple and clear manner.
Our language – The concepts based on define, simple forms aiming to express the collective memory of a specific culture. Having said that forms do not always provide ready-made solutions but they are rediscovered during the design process. It is a stage by stage approach which allows the build-up of different special relationships and smooth transitions between spaces. Energy efficiency, automation technology, sustainability and ecological designs are part of our working procedure.
Our awards – the office has been awarded the Cyprus state architecture 1st prize award 2019 by the president of Cyprus in the category of outstanding architecture and is a nominee for the European Union Mies Van Der Rohe award 2021, Barcelona. Other selective awards include German design award winner 2020, A+Architizer awards 2020, USA (Jury and popular choice winner), Golden A’ design award and competition 2020 Italy.
