Hello! My name is Vayia Komnou. With the desire to design comfortable, functional and ecofriendly homes with low energy consumption, to share ideas and inspiring architecture design, I began writing ecohabitat. I have a passion for energy efficient building design with low environmental impact and minimal aesthetics this is what motivates me to explore new architecture projects, as well as old cases of intriguing, comfortable homes from around the world, sustainable building techniques. On this website you will find carefully curated imagery that will inform and inspire you and images from my personal projects. I highly recommend you check through the archives for more high efficient homes and energy renovations of existing buildings.
In addition to writing weekly for Ecohabitat I also work as a freelance architect involved in designing new houses, energy efficiency renovations and interior design. I am an certified Energy Performance Inspector/Assessor, issuing energy performance certificates for buildings While also recommending solutions for improving their energy performance. The simplicity and economy of Passive House fits my philosophy for the creation of passive and efficient houses perfectly. I am a Certified Passive House Designer since Jun 2017.
I am the mother to two children, my oldest daughter is Angeliki who is now 3,5 and my youngest son Lucas is 1,5 years old. I live with my husband in Thessaloniki, Greece. I have more than 10 years’ experience in art and design. If you would like to work together, have any inquires or submissions please contact me here. You can also follow me on Instagram for more behind the scenes photos and videos, on Facebook for blog updates and articles and on Pinterest for a catalog of imagery for architecture, interior and DIY.
