The Up Studio

The Up Studio

In 2018 The Up Studio started trialing ARCHICAD – after just 1 month they knew it was the right BIM software for their practice.

Our final studio profile of Episode 4 of By Design lets us see architecture through the eyes of Olvia Demetriou, Co-Founder of DC architectural firm HapstakDemetriou+. Demetriou comes to the industry from a familial connection, being born and raised in the urban planning and architecture field. That early exposure to high intensity design meetings shaped her and helped her realize at a young age she wanted to be an architect.

Watch the Studio Profile for insight into Demetriou's unique and rich experience as a pioneering woman in the industry. You'll hear her speak about her use of ARCHICAD and how it supports her ability to create renderings that have made a developer say, “I want to live there".
