Loom Athens Hotel

Loom Athens is situated in the historic Kerameikos area, in downtown Athens, Greece. Nestled within an artistic neighborhood, the design team at ATN Constructions seeks to craft an architectural narrative that intertwines Greek archetypes and heritage with contemporary forms, celebrating ceramics and loom arts.

A bespoke ceramic brick, reminiscent of Athenian design from the 1960s, provides both privacy and plays with light across the facades. An enclosed garden interrupts the dense urban fabric, introducing an interplay of solids and voids within the architecture. Organic solid forms alternate with metallic railings that rhythmically mimic the abstract proportions of loom threads. The surfaces echo the relief found on the columns of the Parthenon.

Vibrant colors inspired by the Minoan civilization and the “hidden” polychromy of the Parthenon Frieze are juxtaposed with fresh pastel shades. The dominant presence of Egyptian blue, a hue observed on Greek statues, sets the tone. This fusion of colors and forms creates a new semiotic language, blending industrial design with a pop aesthetic.
