Elena Vandelli Stavropoulou, is a Greek Italian architect, specialized in bioclimatic and environmental architecture. She studied Law and Architecture at the Aristotelian University of Thessaloniki and at the Architectural Association in London.
Becoming an architect she fulfilled her need for design and creation, especially through the combination of designing and making things by hand for particular architectural projects. This is an activity that has always provided her with an immediate satisfaction thanks to the unique process of passing from the idea to the final material object.
Elena has a strong passion for handcrafted objects that started much earlier than her architectural career: she still remembers creating at the age of 15 her first collection of handmade bags for her cousins when visiting them in Italy. She never stopped designing and creating handmade bags, following her imagination.
