life is too vivid to be spent in boring spaces
Mutiny architecture and design is an architecture practice based in Athens, Greece, formed by architects Manos Gogoulis, Manos Karavasilis and Apostolos Kyteas. Driven by the motto: “Life is too vivid to be spent in boring spaces”, the “mutineers” aim to produce contemporary architecture with character.
Every name has an origin. “Mutiny” describes an act of constant questioning of context, a continuous urge to change, evolution and adaptation to contemporary life needs and habits. Every architectural project is unique and people at Mutiny aim to envision original spaces of high quality. Every project is imagined through the prism of design, materiality and spatial experience. The act of design forms the basis of any constructed space or object and constitutes the actual DNA of a construction. Design is not only a theoretical backbone but also the fundamental process of translating the imaginary to reality, transforming notions into drawings and pulling ideas from creative realms and enclosing them into the rigorous frame of a paper. The existence of design implies a thorough understanding of people, space and their interaction and people at Mutiny strive constantly to achieve original results and produce original ideas.
Mutiny focuses on architectural design and project realization. The agenda includes residential projects, renovations, space transformations, design of commercial spaces and product design (furniture or decorative objects). Every project is divided in different phases in order to control the creative process of design and organize the practical aspects of realization.
The foundation stone of Mutiny is the idea that every space is unique, as its creators and inhabitants.
