Odysseas Diakakis

architect + Urban designer

Odysseas has worked on a wide range of projects, from small public spaces to complex masterplans in the UK and abroad. His interest lies in a conceptual design approach with focus on the future users, while he promotes the collaboration between different teams and disciplines.

He works with drawings that communicate the sense of space and he thrives to explore innovative ideas.

 

recent projects include

Oxford Station Supplementary Planning Document, UK

Focusing on the arriving experience to Oxford, the SPD brings forward an overarching vision to create a new transport interchange and a distinctive gateway to Oxford. Odysseas was part of a multidisciplinary team that worked with the council to deliver the SPD document, which is now adopted.

 

North-West Cambridge

This award-winning 120-hectare greenfield development for Cambridge University incorporates a broad mix of uses including homes, retail and leisure, research facilities and public space. Odysseas helped in a number of plot studies for the second phase of the masterplan.

Dubai Harbour, UAE

Transforming Dubai’s waterfront, this 1.5 million square metres project will create a new destination with residential, commercial, a yacht marina and cruise terminals. Odysseas worked in London and Dubai offices with the masterplanning team and helped in client presentations.

 

Geffrye Museum Masterplan, London

To unlock the congested Museum of the Home, which occupies a row of 18th century almshouses, this sensitive approach works mainly with the existing fabric and opening up spaces not accessible before to the public. Odysseas assisted Wright and Wright Architects with drawings, reports and a number of presentations to the clients and local stakeholders.

Public Square, Athens

Odysseas helped to create a new identity for a previously little-used public space. He worked alongside the leading architect, throughout the project from the first sketches to the implementation of this green square in the south east of Athens.
