Lefteris Kotzampasakis completed his Grad- Diploma in Architecture from Leicester School of Architecture at De Montfort University in 2002.During the University's summer breaks between 1999 and 2002 he had the chance to work in a remarkable Minoan Palatial excavation, with the legendary couple of Greek Archeologists Yiannis and Efi Sakelaraki.
Shortly after completing his military Service, at the Greek Engineering Force, in 2004, he collaborated with Charis Markodimitrakis in Archanes founding C.El. Architects.The humble beginning quickly grew and led to designing and developing numerous refurbishments, hotels and other private and commercial projects. The precious experience that was gained brought a wealth of knowledge in numerous fields of business, architecture, detailing, materials and legislation. At the end of 2010 the founding partners followed separate paths.
Since 2011 Lefteris K. founded LKarchitect. Up until today the practice has involved in a series of commercial, residential, cultural and public projects. Involvement, in every stage of the designing process, is very important, for the end result. Together with the occupant and respecting the budget, we form the brief, trying to analyze its present but also future needs. Adding a touch of curiosity, surprise and excitement, to the "recipe", new spaces are created that further explore the user's daily habits of work, enjoyment and relaxation.
Our close involvement in different commercial and private projects has led to an ongoing collaboration with Structural, Civil, Mechanical engineers and most certainly architects and interior designers.
Though the "usual suspects" of certain projects are.
