Utopic Design – Kefalonia Hotel
Of course this is in the concept phase, and as we don’t talk very much about hotels here at archtopia, we won’t go on detailing the matter. We hope this serves as inspiration for the young architects out there.
The latest hotel design in Kefalonia, Greece created by the Divercity Architects intends to blend this contemporary hotel with the vernacular architecture of the surroundings. Because of to the site conditions, the hotel blends to the sloping topology of the steep hill and it rests on and then breaks into four distinct strands that divide the site into north and south plots. While fifteen luxury villas occupy the northern plot, the southern portion contains gardens and areas for relaxation. The facades are clad in operable perforated wooden panels that both serve to separate and extend the private living space into the outdoors.
Brilliant and delightful design, and surroundings.
