Stephanos Spirakis

Architect
BSc BA (Hons) MArch DipArch

Stephanos joined JTP in November 2013 as Architectural Assistant following the completion of his MArch at the Manchester School of Architecture, for which he was awarded a distinction. Prior to this, he studied civil engineering in Athens.

With a keen interest across all scales of the built environment, Stephanos’ experience ranges from small-scale residential extensions and refurbishment projects in London through to large-scale, residential-led and mixed-use masterplans and urban extensions in the UK. Having previously worked at Farrells’ London office, he was involved in high-profile projects such as the consented first phase of Bicester Exemplar Eco-town and Folkestone Seafront Masterplan. Since joining JTP, Stephanos has been involved in feasibility studies for strategic sites, competitions, outline and detail planning applications and the development of design codes.

Stephanos is interested in participatory design methodologies, which he employed when undertaking his postgraduate design thesis and this led him on to join JTP. He has been involved in collaborative and public art interventions, and has undertaken academic research on the topic of Architourism’s regenerative and socioeconomic impact on place. He enjoys teaching and is passionate about the arts.
