Tazlab is a group of architects sharing a passion for creating inspirational, everlasting spaces for all human activities.
Coming from a family of constructors, before he was totally attracted to architecture, Christos (Tito) obtained a Certificate of Studies in Business Administration from A.C.T., Thessaloniki. After a brief period in Florence, where he was introduced to architecture, he moved to the U.S.A. where he graduated from A.S.U. with a bachelor’s degree in Landscape Architecture and Planning. It was there, in Arizona, where he molded his personal conception of spaces and design. Returning to Greece, he acquired a master’s degree in Architecture from A.U.T. Thessaloniki. He further deepened his knowledge in “Green” architecture participating in the “European Master in Renewable Energy” course in Athens. He is a registered architect since 1998 where he entered the family construction business, Macon Group. Besides designing and supervising, he acquired extensive experience in project management and controlling both small and large scale projects. In 2008 he established his independent architectural laboratory, Taz. He oversees every TazLab project, from the first sketches to the last detail, ensuring that it follows a creative path that leads consistently to a finely streamlined construction persistently committed to original design.

THE WAY WE WORK
In our architecture, inspiration comes from a wide spectrum of life experiences and an endless variety of shapes and ideas rising out of nature. Forms and spaces created can be so unique and timeless as nature and life itself.
We approach our projects in a holistic way. For every project we form a dedicated team, including all kinds of engineers, landscapers, lighting designers and experts taking care of public documents and permits. In this way we ensure an integrated result. In addition we offer you a custom made design according to your needs, thus we provide personal identity to your space. At the same time, we give special consideration to energy efficient, ecological design, carrying this mentality throughout the whole construction.
Architecture is both the process of designing and creating physical structures." We give life to our design by actually building our projects. We supervise, taking care and protecting our ideas throughout the construction process. We keep a close eye being present, researching, investigating ways of application. We carry this experience through our new projects.
