AYK Architects


AYK Architects is a studio for architecture, urbanism and design, founded by Andreas Y. Kyriakou in 2018 at London. Since then, he, and his associates are mainly focused on design methods and procedures for creating a new paradigm and an innovative approach in architecture industry.

The extensive international experience of the team, in world-class multi-scale projects, reinforces the practice’s aim for establishing a fresh, diverse and contemporary design product for the urban web of Cypriot cities and abroad. The local and international network of collaborators embraces this idea and pushes the boundaries to this direction.  

AYK Architects is an award-winning practice and currently based in Paphos, Cyprus.

Το αρχιτεκτονικό γραφείο AYK Architects ιδρύθηκε από τον Ανδρέα Γ. Κυριάκου το 2018 στο Λονδίνο, με σκοπό να προάγει την αρχιτεκτονική, τον αστικό σχεδιασμό και το design. Έκτοτε, τόσο ο Ανδρέας όσο και οι συνεργάτες του, επικεντρώνονται σε μεθόδους και διαδικασίες σχεδιασμού για τη δημιουργία ενός νέου παραδείγματος και μιας καινοτόμου προσέγγισης στην αρχιτεκτονική βιομηχανία.

Η εκτεταμένη διεθνής εμπειρία της ομάδας, σε έργα παγκόσμιας κλάσης, ενισχύουν το στόχο του γραφείου, ο οποίος επικεντρώνεται στη δημιουργία ενός φρέσκου, πολυποίκιλου και σύγχρονου προϊόντος υψηλού αρχιτεκτονικού σχεδιασμού και αισθητικής για τον αστικό ιστό των κυπριακών πόλεων και του εξωτερικού.

Το γραφείο έχει βραβευθεί στην Κύπρο και στο εξωτερικό και έχει πλέον ως βάση την Πάφο της Κύπρου.
