New Hotel, is our debut project in architecture and large-scale interior design. There is a story behind this project that is worth telling. When we were invited to take on the challenge, we refused at first. We didn’t want to create another boutique or design hotel. However, upon seeing the potential of the space and the freedom of creation we were being given, we realized it was too good an opportunity to miss. We decided to work as we do in our studio, using a laboratorial approach. We put together a school inside the old hotel that was named Campanas’ Workshop in Athens. As guest-invaders, we requested this group of young architects to feed us with inputs onlocal modern culture, to play with the idea of transforming classic and folk references in a contemporary way, and somehow be our eyes and guides in creating a hotel that spoke locally but with a universal resonance. This being our first project of this nature, we tried to give our most humble and honest performance.
