ECOAMA Elias Messinas, Int'l. Assoc.AIA Architect, is an expert in sustainable design and green buildings. ECOAMA offers architectural design and consulting services to private and public clients. ECOAMA puts attention to the needs of the client and provides the best possible solution at the highest possible quality and services.

Buildings are fairly complicated organisms. This is why we give them the best possible attention, from the functional planning to the QUALITY of the space, the balance between elements, spaces or colors, and the spirit it creates for people. Architecture is about funtionality, budget, and addressing successfully constraints and limitations. But its essence lies in the quality of living - whether a private apartment, a house or a public building.

We work closely with our clients in a process of COOPERATION and involvement, in order to best understand their needs and desires and to realize them through design. Our work process is interactive and participatory and we invite the client to be involved in all stages, and an active partner in decision making.

We respond to the historic and cultural context and we learn from the genius loci of the place, so that the project is relevant and in dialogue with the place and community. We care for the ENVIRONMENT and we integrate this care into our practice, both in our designs and in the advise we offer to our clients.

We invest time and energy in our COMMUNITY, raising environmental issues, and teach, train, and guide young professionals and students, to become environmentally and socially conscious in their design and practice, to benefit their communities. Get to know more on our activity at and
