Offering an entirely NEW approach to young interior design, energetic hospitality, and seductive customer-centered services, NEW Hotel in Athens city is the first ever hotel project of the award winning designer duo, Fernando and Humberto Campana. YES! Hotels owner and international arts patron Dakis Joannou commissioned the Brazilian brothers for their eco-sensitive ethos and the use of contemporary handicraft practices and local idioms. Drawn to their specific language, which in turn draws from urban street life, contemporary art and the Sao Paulo favela culture, Joannou gave them absolute freedom to dream. The result is an intriguing 79-room establishment, an exquisite 5-star hotel in Athens center where every public space and every floor has been creatively re-NEW-ed to include remnants of the former Olympic Palace Hotel. The interiors are simply outstanding, the unusual custom-made furniture and handmade fixtures make guests feel as if they live and breathe in a major art installation refined by luxury in Athens city center.
New Contemporary Design Hotel in Athens
NEW Hotel is the first ever hotel project designed by the award-winning Campana Brothers. The dynamic duo, Humberto and Fernando Campana, in collaboration with the Campanas’ Workshop in Athens, transformed the 79-room Olympic Palace Hotel into the striking NEW of today. A new concept of space was formed with the use of old everyday artifacts and objects designed by the innovative Greek architect Iason Rizos in 1958 that were reintroduced as pieces of fine art with the help of specialized craftsmen, cabinetmakers and artisans. Inspired by themes of the Greek culture such as the legendary Karagiozis folklore figure, a series of old postcards and the concept of the evil eye, pre-existing spaces have turned into masterpieces of contemporary art offering a breath of fresh air with hybrid approaches and advanced technologies.
