Architect Minas Kosmidis, graduated from the School of Architecture of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. In 1991 he completed his postgraduate studies in industrial and furniture design in the École d’ Architecture de Paris-Conflans, having won a state scholarship. In 1993, he establishes his first architecture studio in his hometown, Komotini. The studio Minas Kosmidis [Architecture in Concept], is actually the evolution of the architect’s personal studio, after his permanent relocation in 2007 in Thessaloniki, introducing at the same time a new corporate identity and a new philosophy. The studio is now active all around Greece and abroad, in countries such as Cyprus, Egypt, Ukraine, and China, undertaking architecture and interior design projects. During the last years the studio has created a broad and diversified portfolio in the fields of private housing, hospitality, retail, and more importantly in the sector of food service and entertainment. Many of the studio’s projects have been featured in renowned Greek and international magazines and leading websites and have been awarded and/or shortlisted in international competitions such as the “Best of Year” awards of the American magazine “Interior Design”, the Chinese competitions “Modern Decoration awards” and “Idea Tops” and the English competition “FX awards”.
