Ahylo derives from the Greek prefix [a] and [υλη-hyle], the matter. A direct translation would be immaterial, however it should be conceived as an idea additional to matter. The ontology of events and processes, allows the material and immaterial to be interrelated and integrated in ceaseless dynamism. Ahylo refers to the organisation of matter; it refers to process. It is ahylo what shapes hyle.
Ahylo is an awarded architectural design practice based in Athens, that operates in every stage of the design process from concept to construction. It’s our mission at ahylo to provide a unique and individualised approach to design. Through advanced design and construction technology, algorithmic and material processes, we experiment on contemporary techniques in design and construction and our work aims to be innovative and functional.
We craft spaces, atmospheres that live in memory based on the sculpting of light, volume and matter.
We shape experience.
Our portfolio ranges from public to private sectors, from cultural projects to residential and commercial. Our built work can be found in Greece, Spain and Peru.
Ahylo fab is a design research laboratory that experiments with materials and design technics. Complex geometries and experimental material use are passing through a specific experimental procedure before they can be used for the actual studios projects. methodologies that foment the behaviour of non-linear systems. It aims to support every project delivery all the way through its’ final execution.
