Τhe proposal involves the masterplan configuration, the architectural study as well as the interior design and the formation of the surrounding space, aiming to give birth to a complete touristic infrastructure providing high quality services.
Santorini’s morphological rules restrain design limits. Considering that the particular property is located to the east side of the island and has limited view to the sea, an introverted architectural approach was more appropriate. That was accomplished by the creation of a new point of interest; a centrally placed infinity pool that visually connects both sides of the hotel complex.
The concept’s main goal was to create a representation of a traditional village where all functions are structured around the central square. Small alleys between the building volumes lead to the lobby and restaurant.
The custom designed pattern that decorates the floor unites all outdoor spaces. Santorini’s local dark stone and rough plaster surfaces define the architectural aesthetic. Τhe perforated facades, inspired by traditional dovecotes, are an alternative approach towards traditional Greek architecture.
The lighting study elevates the exceptional parts of this space, delimits the infinity pool and upgrades the perforated façade, creating unique shadow and light patterns.
