HOTEL 56

PROGRAM: Transformation of former office building into 4* hotel

YEAR: 2018

LOCATION: Athens, Greece

CLIENT: PRIVATE

FLOOR AREA: 1’500sqm

A former office building built in the early 70s seeks a new use. Its position near the Acropolis along with Athens’ growing demand in accommodation dictate its transformation into a hotel. A total of 30 rooms, a lounge, reception and a rooftop bar that offers a panoramic view of the city find their place within the existing building’s volume. The facades are entirely reviewed in order to cater for the new use and create a balanced dialogue with the existing structure but also with the city.
