ADD is an Architecture and Design Studio based in Athens, Greece focusing on creating spatial experiences through the design of buildings, interior spaces and objects. ADD’s hands-on approach involves careful selection of materials and unique use of light in all its forms so as to infuse atmosphere to the three-dimensional space. ADD perceive each project as an exquisite opportunity to discover latent potential which fits the programmatic senario, spanning from showrooms to concept-stores and from residences to dedicated furniture.
Founders, Argyris Chronopoulos and Dionysis Koutsioumaris collaborated throughout their studies in NTUA, which led to the reception of the European Architectural Medal Award and the nomination for the Mies van Der Rohe-Young Talent Architecture Award for their graduation diploma project (“Sub_Zero-Life Beyond Parking”) in 2016. Through the years they have always shared the notion of “expect the unexpected” as a form of inspiration leading to original and unique design.
Since its foundation in 2016, ADD Architecture Studio has received the Silver A’ Design Award 2017-2018 (“Reverse Pickup” Table Lamp), the BIG SEE Interior Design Award 2018 (“L’ Escalier” Concept Store) and has been the youngest duo selected for exhibition in the 9th Biennale of Greek Young Architects (Residence in Ekali -“Meuble a habiter”). Most recently ADD received the Golden A’ Design Award 2018-2019 (“Reverse Sunclock” Multifunctional Wall Lamp), a prize shared with only 4 more laureates worldwide.
ADD is a member of IDC (International Design Club) and IAD (International Association of Designers). ADD is inspired and driven by the vision of a holistic type of architectural office engaging with the full spectrum of design-oriented strategies and solutions.
