Design Over The Norms (dotn) is a design practice based in Athens. Our fundamental basis is that excellent design results can be achieved only through a collaborative model where specialists from different disciplines come together. From product design to residential complexes and from interior design to industrial typologies our scope is the successful realization. The design process is led by George Athanasopoulos , an engineer and designer dedicated in delivering distinctive work. Our engagement with independent architects, engineers, artists, designers and thInkers is deeply friendly. Together as a team we consider the big picture and our portfolio demonstrates our sustainable ethos. Our design is clean, understandable and questions todays environment.
George Athanasopoulos is founder and director of dotn. He studied engineering at the University of Patras (2008) and received a Master of Science in Sustainable Environmental Design from the Architectural Association school of Architecture London (2009). After his graduation from AA he worked independently for five years before he co-founded Façade. George was leading the design process on all the Façade’s projects until he moved permanently in Athens in 2018. He is a member of RIBA and the Technical Chamber of Greece.
