Fluo architecture & design studio was established in 2010 by Maniati Fei, Michail Thalia and Serrou Christina specializing in the fields of architecture and interior design. Our wide-ranging portfolio of projects includes private residences, hotels as well as commercial and public spaces. With offices in Athens and Thessaloniki, Fluo can undertake in a variety of locations and contexts, from concept to design and from construction to completion.
We treat every client as an individual and perceive every project as unique. Our approach to the clients comes by listening to their concerns, our understanding of their needs comes by translating their vision into form.
Branding and brand awareness have become inescapable parts of our daily visual lives.Fluo believes that it is an architect’s responsibility to incorporate client’s brand in the design process and do not maintain a critical distance. Having a proactive approach, architecture is used to reflect the brand in the consistency of the design and visual appearance.
The balance between economic, social and ecological ambitions is considered from the initial stages of each project. Each design derives from, in depth, analytical research of intelligent concepts for better and smarter buildings and urban environments which will improve the everyday lives of the residents and the users.
New design techniques led us to develop new working strategies, parametric design and digital fabrication are fields of our interest for further research and exploration. We strongly believe that innovative technology and materials are fundamental forces for architectural evolution towards a sustainable and intelligent build environment.
