A few words from Mr. Tsikandilakis:
Journey and elation: this is architecture for me! I think these two words sum up the reasons why I became an architect. My journey into architecture has been and always is an experience. I have always wanted with passion to touch and connect the contemporary with the tradition of the local with the global, with the aim of creating spaces that evoke emotions and inspire people's lives.
The journey is like a great adventure and it is worth as long as we do it with love, fun and strength. The truth is that the results of our work, but also the love of the people we collaborated with and traveled together on this, has filled us with joy.
My youthful enthusiasm, despite the three decades of continuous and arduous professional activity, is what keeps me going and keeps my mood alive for new things. As I approach 60's I still have the same, if not greater, passion to explore the mystery of architecture. And of course the same passion for love, friendship, adventure, travel, in short passion for life.
We continue with momentum for the next ones!
