Awards and Testimonials
Mrs. Thekla Antoniadou“The team of Andreas and Zoe are unique in providing modern, functional and practical solutions while at the same time paying tribute and enhancing the beauty of listed buildings. As far as I am concerned they have a gift of taking a historical structure, updating it to meet the requirements of modern society while retaining the essence of the building.”

Syntheseis Architectural Periodical
“The house in Nicosia Old Town is an apocalypse; behind a simple garden entrance lies hidden a whole world.
The Old factory has been transformed into a warm residence, which the family enjoy together”.
“In a three storey old factory dated to the ’60’s, and within another, smaller dated 1910 within Nicosia Old Town, Andreas and Zoe Lordos have created a home that conveys to “Alice in Wonderland”, playing with colour and the Seasons”
“The house of 1909 in Nicosia Old Town reminds us that the beauty always exists. The renovation and restoration in respect to the tradition can be in harmony with the contemporary and it proves that the old buildings are not supposed to be demolished.”
“Andreas and Zoe Lordos build their own story creating projects such as the impressive Ermitage on the Beach, which balances between aesthetics, quality and functionality”.
“The house becomes a productive unit, capable of bringing an income and at the same time economizing on transportation costs, commuting time which can be put to family-or work-use as needed.”
“Looks of a… Manhattan Loft”
“The two architects, Andreas and Zoe Lordos, have converted an old factory in the heart of Old Nicosia, into a beautiful three storey house. Modern, yet with classical elements, it brings to the imagination other eras..”
