The architectural firm
Sophia Emfietzoglou, Architect
Sophia Emfietzoglou was born and raised in Athens, where she grew up surrounded by architectural designs and building outlines, thanks to her family’s profession. Her father and uncle were civil engineers, while her mother was an architectural designer. Thus, as a child, Sophia’s creativity found many outlets, and she developed a deep interest in the field of architecture.
After completing her studies at Athens College in 1996, Sophia went on to pursue a degree in Architecture at the University of Greenwich and the University of Brighton.
In her early career, Sophia gained invaluable experience working as an architect at the engineering company "MECHANIKI” for five years, from 2005 to 2010. During this time, she actively participated in the construction and supervision of 55 luxury residences in Ekali. She also contributed to the restoration and equipping of the building complex of the National Theatre on Agiou Konstantinou Street in Athens.
In 2010, Sophia Emfietzoglou founded her own architectural firm, with the goal of transforming her vision of creating functional and human-centered spaces into reality. Her firm offers personalized architectural and interior design services.
Sophia’s portfolio boasts a diverse range of projects, including architectural designs, renovations and decorations of residences, shops, commercial spaces, and public buildings. These architectural and construction projects are often accompanied, upon request, by specialized services such as architectural representation, preliminary studies and implementation studies, preparation of licensing files, and issuance of professional licenses for commercial spaces, interior design services, as well as consulting guidance with real estate and property utilization services.
As an architect, Sophia Emfietzoglou’s philosophy is based on two fundamental principles: offering personalized services and taking an integrated approach to each project. Her architectural studies are centered around the individual person and their desired urban or rural environment, with the goal of creating a space that perfectly harmonizes with their needs and experiences. This is achieved by designing an ideal space that combines aesthetics, functionality, and sustainability, whether it is for residential or professional purposes.
