Ms Konstantina Tsapakidou


I studied Architecture and Architectural engineering at London South Bank University, followed by an MSc in Civil Engineering and Structures at City university. As an architect, I have worked for practices including Wilkinson Eyre and Grimshaw, before establishing my own practice, Studio Fiftyone, in 2020.

I joined Kingston School of Art in 2022, where I run a third year design studio with David Owen. I also teach both at undergraduate and postgraduate level as part of the tectonics team.

I am a certified Passivhaus Designer and have a specialist research interest in sustainable architecture, retrofitting and circular economy.
