Galini Giannousi

Architectural Designer

BA(Hons), MArch

Galini is based in the Edinburgh office where she takes a key role in design development and quality management.

Recently, Galini has worked on HTA’s bespoke designs for the private rented sector. She has been behind the designs for Blocks Five and Six at Greenford Green (for Greystar), Kirkstall Forge (for CEG) and Oxlo (for Neighbour). These new build developments, of different scales, have allowed Galini to gain experience of the specialist requirements of private rented sector design.

Galini graduated from her 3 year Architecture degree course at The Manchester School of Architecture and did a year placement in Cyprus where she worked at J+A Philippou Architects.

She studied at the Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture for 2 years, graduating with a Masters of Architecture with Distinction. 

Through her Master's degree, she was given the chance to visit Japan and work with the university students there in order to complete a competition project. The progress she managed whilst there received very positive reviews and consequently Galini was awarded the first prize. This opportunity provided her with a great insight into the Japanese culture, which has significantly influenced her way of thinking and processing information in Architecture Design.

Galini is now working on Block 1 Residential Tower of Winstanley & York Road Estrate Regeneration Project and she is behind the desing development and quality management of various projects in Edinburgh office.
