Chora is a multidisciplinary studio based in Athens.
It was founded by Stefania Orfanidou and Gregory Petropoulos in January 2019.
Chora is an open project that integrates research, architecture, urbanism, interior and industrial design.
Chora in ancient Greek was the territory of the Ancient Greek polis outside the city proper.
Chora according to Plato is neither being nor nonbeing but an interval between which the "forms" were originally held.
Chora for us represents the expansion over the limits of the existing territory, it is the renegotiation of the human condition in inhabiting the space.
