“Urban Suites” is a high-end aparthotel situated in Alimos area, right on the Athenian waterfront, with an astonishing view of the Saronic Gulf. It consists of ten units, ranging from 30sqm. suite-style ones to 100sqm. family-friendly ones. The units were designed from scratch in a pre-existing, not in use, four storey building. The main design guideline was to take advantage of the maximum extent of the building’s privileged position. Each apartment was treated as a distinct entity and simultaneously as a part of a whole. This was achieved by maintaining a common design language that was repeated creatively and adjusted accordingly to the size and the position of each apartment. Emphasis was given to the visual continuity of the outside and the inside, of the natural and urban landscape and the built environment of the apartments. That was achieved through the implementation of open floor plan layouts, repetition of materials, use of colours, reflective surfaces and transparencies.
