Our five core values are integrity, ethical behavior, responsibility, respect, creativity, reliability and innovation. As we win new projects, recruit new talent and face a wide-range of construction and management challenges, these guide our management strategy, decision making, productivity and performance.

Total Architecture’ indicates that all relevant design decisions have been considered together and have been integrated into a whole by a well organised and dedicated team empowered to set priorities, mitigate risks and propose alternatives.
Whenever man imagined he had found ” eternal beauty” he fell back into imitation and stagnation. True tradition is the result of constant growth. Its quality must be dynamic, not static, to serve as an inexhaustible stimulus to man.
Walter Gropius (1883–1969)
At ARENCOS we constantly strive to redefine the standard of excellence in everything we design and manage. Therefore, we are open to ideas that challenge the conventional views and drive innovation.
We strive to do great, successful, important, and rewarding projects that we can take pride in. As a team, we are sharing our knowledge and lessons learned. We support and encourage innovation and we also set big goals and high expectations, but we are appreciative, grateful, and supportive of our successes.
A View for the Future
We strive to create spaces that are grounded in historical precedent -as the majority of our projects in Chania, Crete, take strategic clues from their context, and have a view to the future. We travel as far and as widely as possible to see and discover new concepts, design, strategies and tools.
With a portfolio spanning from high-end residences to affordable housing, touristic facilities and renovation, ARENCOS applies the same design excellence to each project. Our mission is to achieve each client’s goals while including passion, vision and diligence with every project.
Experience and Knowledge
At ARENCOS, we work to discover and distill the fundamental principles that drive each architectural or engineering project. It is this essence, revealed in the practice that resonates within a culture and community, creating new experience and knowledge which endures through time.
ARENCOS has built a reputation for creating buildings, landscapes and master plans that represent the highest aspiration and pursue of our clients.
