About KARD Architects

KARD architects is a fresh brand created by a dominated process of two practices in Thessaloniki, Greece, Kouloukouris & associates and Sempsis+Raidis architects.

Both offices have more than 35 years of architectural and planning experience in almost every sector of private and public development. Our goal is to expand architecture and design in a comprehensive and sustainable approach. We focus in detail, the persistent articulation of design ideas, uniqueness and quality. For us, design is not only about aesthetic, but a process that formulate habitat values, society needs, exploring new living qualities, and promote sustainable development. Our field of expertise pertains to every level of architectural design, from urban planning, environmental development projects, touristic projects to retail and branding, and even to furniture design. We have achieved successful collaborations with several public authorities, municipalities, and prefectural authorities, and a succession of private clients from Greece and abroad.

Our goal is to expand architecture and design with a more comprehensive sustainable approach. We believe in detail, as an expression of hard work and articulation of design ideas, uniqness and quality. For us design is more than aesthetics, it is a process that can add value in building forms and society, explore living potentials, promote technical quality. We start from scratch. Sometimes process require long hours that we run with the client in order to form solutions that they fit to clients need. This is why each client has special meaning for us.

We can make our expertise available to every level of resident, housing or hotel development, retail and branding, or environmental development. Design has no limit or scale. Our success is based on the talent, expertise and experience of our staff in fields of architectural design, planning and construction.
