The existing building from 1963 before the refurbishment used to be a modern office space. Thus, the facades consisted mainly from glass and steel. As the building was part of the modern Athenian history, we kept the memory of its vertical and horizontal elements. The windows in the new structure were moved a bit inside so that small balconies emerge. As a result, the vertical and horizontal structural elements were amplified in order to better express the rhythm of the facade. The redesign of this particular space aimed to make an office building into an operational hotel with high aesthetic value.
