NANIMA is an Athens- and London-based Architecture & Design firm founded by architect Natali Markantonatou. An award-winning professional who graduated from the Chelsea College of Arts & the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London, Natali worked for several years at the renowned firm of Foster + Partners, in a diverse selection of large-scale projects. She has participated in a variety of architectural exhibitions and has culled extensive international experience through her travels, having attended workshops in Beijing, Bolivia, Chile, India and Bangladesh. She also participated in a groundbreaking, hands-on project in Koshirakura village, Japan, where building, community, culture cross-pollination and social responsibility came together in a paradigm of architectural practice.
NANIMA constitutes the embodiment of Natali’s wide-ranging and protean approach to architecture and design. The firm’ s projects, both residential and commercial, are driven by the conviction that there is a conceivable and buildable ideal -a perfect story to tell- for every client. The NANIMA collaborative philosophy emphasizes the experiential aspects of architecture and is geared towards fostering an engaging, fulfilling narrative of everyday life, where ideas and desires truly manifest into existence. The harmonious union of form and function, creativity and practicality, is the principle upon which the studio has been founded. Its foundations are a tremendous attention to detail, the choice to work with superlative materials, an aspiration for innovation and a keenness for new challenges. The discovery of the essence of every structure is the ultimate goal, resulting in what can be described as architecture with emotions, architecture of passion.
NANIMA provides a comprehensive range of architecture and interior design services, as well as landscape planning and bespoke furniture design & manufacture. More specifically:
