a little story about who we are and what we do


Orphanos architects is a multi-disciplinary architectural practice, whose main purpose is to create architecture of enduring value. We firmly believe that architecture and design should be accessible to all and reach broadly into our lives.

We enjoy the challenge of developing the best possible design solution and we take keen pride in seeing the unseen, creating beautiful, functional and creative spaces for people to live and work in. We do not believe in “signature looks” and we work very closely with our clients so that our designs reflect our passion for innovative and functional architecture, along with our client’s requests, needs, and budgets.

Our clients include homeowners, commercial and retail corporations, doctors and a variety of professionals. We measure our success not only by the high quality of the final product but also by the personal satisfaction of our clients. Something that is amply demonstrated by the frequency with which our past clients seek us out for our creativity and quality of work.


Marios A. Orphanos

Marios Orphanos was educated at The Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, where in 2004 he was awarded a first class with honors, Master of Science degree in Architectural Engineering.

Marios Orphanos is a registered architect at the Cyprus Architects Association, the Cyprus Civil Engineers and Architects Association, the Technical Chamber of Cyprus and since 2012 is a Licensed Technical Expert on Energy Efficiency.

He implements sustainable architecture in all of his projects and he is passionate about design, people, and the environment around us, bringing that passion to seeking a unique solution for each project and client.


Our purpose is to create timeless, sustainable and beautiful environments that are inspirational to our clients and to the community. We have a desire to be considered to be one of the best, not necessarily one of the biggest, and listening to and understanding the wants and needs of our clients is a top priority. We aim to be clear, appropriate and responsive.

We use a range of tools, from simple hand drawings to a fully integrated BIM 3D visualization system throughout, which also helps our clients have access and information on every stage of the process. We bring our experience of complex procurement and contractual administration processes to ensure that each project will be built with craftsmanship and an accurate cost control.

What We Do

We can develop new buildings, renovate an existing building or simply provide the fit out for newly acquired premises. We have designed private residences, retail and commercial spaces, hostels, clinics, industrial buildings and other cultural facilities.

Our team can provide a comprehensive end-to-end solution, incorporating the architectural plans, interior design and a complete project management, working on all scales of the project from the overall concept down to the detail of junctions between different materials.
