Konstantin Ikonomidis is a Swedish architect and the founder of Konstantin Arkitekter. He graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, Copenhagen in 2014, and studied at the Department of Architecture of the College of Built Environment at the University of Washington in 2012. His work bridges the territories of art, architecture and scientific research with a special interest in extreme climates.
Konstantin has a background working in the field of architectural research in extreme climates. He has played a key role in the development of prototype houses that prevent vector entry in Sub-Saharan Africa. His background in the field has led to his interest in establishing an architectural and creative practice that challenges today’s building methods by collaborating with specialists in a range of disciplines and highlights the need for academic research to drive innovation in architecture.
Since 2019, Konstantin is developing a design-build cultural project on behalf of UNESCO World Heritage Site, Aasivissuit - Nipisat in Sarfannguit, Greenland. Designed to celebrate and promote the Inuit intangible cultural heritage and traditional knowledge of the environment, the Qaammat Pavilion opened to the public on October 2021
