Block722 was founded in the heart of Athens, on Patission 57, one of the most densely populated areas of the capital. The intense cultural and ethnic diversity of the area have enhanced the practice’s relation to the city’s reality and constant adaptation to new and interesting design elements. The office’s location, urban block 722, becomes more than a city planning number – it evolves into an element of identity.
