Dr. D. Porphyrios is the recipient of the Driehaus International Prize in Architecture and the Arthur Ross Award for Excellence is an appointed Member of CABE Design Review Committee.  He lectures world over in the principles of Architecture and Design.

His focus on the classical principles of architecture and design mean that his buildings are timeless and in turn, are admired by all.  Dr. Porphyrios' design intent for Highbury Gardens centered on creating buildings that provide a place for people to enjoy modern life, whilst delivering a building that captures the best of traditional design.  Like all fine buildings of the past, the appearance of Highbury Gardens is not only beautiful now, but will also retain its beauty over time. This principle was at the heart of the materials selection for Highbury Gardens.
