Architectural Practice in Creta / Design for Residential / Hotels / Commercial in
Europlan is an architectural practice – design office. The practice is staffed by architects, designers and engineers whose expertise spans from concept design to construction supervision and turn-key projects.
Designed by licensed Architectural staff of our company, who utilize and classify, based on their experience, the information collected by the client to meet their needs and create functional designs that respect the unique environment of the area.
What do architectural studies include in Greece?
The design of the buildings begins with the architectural study. The architectural design must meet the owner’s dreams and requirements and must comply with the provisions of the General Building Regulations (G.O.K.) and the Building Regulations.
The General Building Regulations (G.O.K.) together with the Building Regulations are the basic legislation governing the construction of buildings in Greece. In 2012, G.O.K. was replaced by the New Building Regulation (N.O.K._N.4067_2012).
In the architectural study, the floor plan, dimensions and configuration of the interior spaces of the building are determined, so that the wishes of the customer are fulfilled to the greatest extent possible.
Also, the appropriate position and orientation of the building within the plot is determined and appropriate planning and positioning of the openings per orientation is done in order to achieve optimal sun exposure, natural lighting and ventilation.
Our company undertakes the preparation of the Architectural Study of a project in the phase of Initial Proposal, Preliminary Study, Final Study and Application Study.

What are the design stages in more details?
An overview of the project based on some basic assumptions (location, current building conditions, use of the project) is presented at the initial proposal stage. At this stage, finding the best possible architectural solution results from working closely with the client. We try to combine the specifics of each plot, the needs and desires of the owner, as well as the modern functionality and aesthetics.
Through this collaboration, we help you see your real needs and understand what you really like. The construction of an integrated building program regardless of the size of the building under consideration.
The Final Design is the final study to be submitted to the Town Planning Office and includes all the information necessary for the project’s layout. The Application Design includes additional design details such as materials that will use, building blocks, furniture, equipment, decorative elements.
With the implementation of the Energy Efficiency Regulation of buildings, the architectural design must take into account the data and the climatic data. That improves the living conditions inside the building and makes it more environmentally friendly.
It must be done by people who have the right knowledge and education. The integrated architectural design in addition to the aesthetic part must be in line with the structural design, the design of the electromechanical installations as well as the energy performance certificate of the building, fire protection and sound insulation.
Our company undertakes the complete architectural design of buildings, residences and offices. The harmonious coexistence of the building with the existing natural environment, but also the specific needs and preferences of the client.
The design of each new building is for us, not a rotational work, but another opportunity for creation.

Our customers review
My collaboration with the technical company Europlan lasts for years because they have proven to me their ability to create homes that stand out while at the same time their specialization in luxury holiday homes is known, both in terms of design and construction. Personally for me it is very important to have partners whose work adds value to the money which - anyway - you have to invest.
The quality of the construction absolutely met our standards and expectations. We have a second plot in Elounda and when the time comes to build, we will definitely work with Europlan again.
As the owner of three villas in the area of Plaka, I highly recommend the technical company Europlan for the execution of design and construction of any technical project.
