Oval Studio is an Architectural Design & Research Practice based in Athens.
Our mission is to design projects with a meaningful impact on people's lives
and provide strategies that help communities build a vision for the future.
The practice was established in early 2016 upon the heritage and the know-how of Zoupas Architects,
a successful and award-winning architecture office dating back from 1976.
Our field of engagement branches out from the very small - the design of objects that constantly reshape our everyday urban-hood,
to the extra-large - the speculation on how urban ecosystems can work as a whole. As a young and evolving practice we place our work
in this multi-tasking and interdisciplinary environment.
