|-||1999: The adaptation of an existing concrete structure in office and congress space to be utilized by the Greek Parliament, on a property owned by the Greek Parliament in Central Athens Amalias 22-24.|
|-||1997: The new building complex for the Ziridis school, at a 80.000 m2 plot at Spata, in Attica close to Athens. The project that was later developed in collaboration with the Architect A. Calligas while the majority of the initial 19 buildings were finally constructed despite budget constraints. The Ziridis school is a prestigious private school in Athens.|
|-||1993: The development of a c.2800 m2 plot in the centre of Athens for commercial use, (on the intersection of Tsoha & Vournazou street) The project was later further developed in collaboration with Architect A.S.Calligas and the 10.000 m2 office complex with 10.000 m2 parking space has since housed the ‘Court of Audit’.
||Private Professional practice for Architectural Studies and Supervisions, focused in quality innovative design, with projects all over the Greek territory including multiple projects in the greater Athens area, as well as projects in the Greek countryside. Designs were all prototypical, and one of a kind in style and detailing, aiming primarily in originality and internal consistency. The Architectural, Landscape or Interior Studies of either commercial office space or private residences (single attached, or blocks of flats) were all fundamentally different in design concept and style/detailing, the original scheme each time most appropriately meeting the specific requirements and constraints of the individual project.
The professional practice was initially based at Voukourestiou 25, Athens 106-71 in central Athens and then in October 2010, it was relocated in privately owned premises at 10, Neophytou Douka Street in the same area (Kolonaki), in a setting that previously housed the practice of late father and collaborating architect A.S.Calligas since the early 70’s.
Design activity also included specialized restoration of several listed buildings, of significant proportion as well as very specialized services both of a structural and organizational nature, but also of legal specialty regarding the multiple additional involved authorities issuing permits and consenting to the proposed works for such projects, most notably the various departments and competent authorities of the ministry of Culture.

- Also since 1997, corresponding Personal Confirmation Degree C (highest for individual) for Category 6 (New Buildings) as well as B for Category 7 (Special Architectural Studies)
-Design priorities and philosophy was not altered based on the legal vehicle by which the projects were officially undertaken. A hands-on approach from the designer of the project from the general layout down to the most minute detail was always characteristic, however full supervision was not possible in public projects as well as in some isolated instances in private projects too.
|1988 - 1996
