LC for GIWA 2017

We are extremely happy to announce that Natassa Lianou + Ermis Chalvatzis, founders and directors of LC ARCHITECTS designed the GIWA (Greek International Awards) Identity and 'THE RISE' Award Statuette for the big ceremony which will be presented at the British Museum in London on December the 9th.  Stay tuned for the big night!

The Design of the GIWA Icon Identity and The Rise’ Award Statuette are inspired by the ethereal yet dynamic nature of each and every woman.

The concept and goal of our design is to create a fresh Icon, so distinct, so unique and feminine, able to highlight the passion of each and every woman for life, progress and success.

The GIWA Icon and The Rise’ Award,  represent a contemporary symbol of the Wings, a timeless and powerful symbol of constant progress and triumph.

Our vision for these emblematic designs, are to manifest and inspire the innovative, confident, balanced and dynamic side of each woman leading towards excellence and success, towards the Apex, towards your Rise!’

Natassa Lianou & Ermis Chalvatzis

'LUMINOUS TOWERS' short-listed at invited competition No8@ARUP 2017


LC ARCHITECTS are excited to announce that they have been short-listed at the invited competition No8@ARUP 2017, with their proposal 'Luminous Towers'. A big THANK YOU for being one of the most popular among ARUP's engineers votes!

No.8@ARUP provides space to host installations and sculptures in Arup’s Central London office. The idea is a simple one, to provide an opportunity and encourage emerging UK architectural practices to showcase their creativity.

The experimental No.8@ARUP Competition illustrates how collaboration amongst emerging designers, across all sectors and disciplines can
lead to an exploration of new technologies and techniques; ultimately leading to responsive and clever buildings that serve human wellbeing.

'Luminous Towers' by LC ARCHITECTS, is a system of lightweight funnels bringing light into the main atrium at ARUP’s No8 building in London. The design blends architecture and engineering, through the intelligent use of the material properties in combination with light.
