Suites and spa in Akrotiri, Chania, Crete

This project is a creative collaboration of Parti Architecture and Next Design.

The Hotel complex is located in Akrotiri, Chania and consists of six autonomous suites with private pools, underground spas, and various exterior arrangements. Since the structure and the buildings’ location were designed prior to the renovation study , we focused on the interior design and decoration, the openings’ shaping, the landscaping and the spa design.

The exterior design is focused on the privacy issues, the sign-posting of the suites’ entrances, and the relaxed atmosphere that summer vacations are all about. Planting has been used for guidance, separating the private and semi-private areas. Finally, the materials that were used are perfectly harmonized with the rocky landscape of the location.

The interior design is based on comfort and openness, while the materials are inspired by earthy colors and textures. The spa area, along with its simplicity and the harmonious material combination, complete the relaxation experience of the visitor.
