On an east oriented plot of 400.000 m2 approximately in Steni Vala, nestled among the North Sporades island of Alonissos’ wild and natural landscape, a 3-level reinforced concrete frame was built in 2018 under a previous building permit. Οn this ‘canvas’, facing the protected and full of ancient shipwrecks marine park of the island, our creative team was requested to implement an original 340 m2 / 6 suites boutique hotel with as little intervention to the existing ‘skeleton’ as possible.
Our intention was that the new hotel should refer to the special flora of Alonissos. The project’s concept was more specifically based on its therapeutic herbs which exceed the 6,000 species. The island of Alonissos is also home of the International Academy of Classical Homeopathy.
