Athens International Airport
The eclectic palette used in Sofitel renovation, contrasts soft and hard materials with cold and warm hues, so as to attract the visitors interest.
The space is highlighted by the linear details on the ceiling and floor, which augment the sense of continuity and consolidate the neighboring microcosms, strongly connected to all the rest areas, through linear perspectives and motives, inspired by the Ancient Greek designs on the amphorae.
This Hotel is the first warm experience a visitor will encounter in Greece, as it is at the frontier of the International hospitality community, bestowed through the International Athens Airport. Sofitel is a centre, a meeting place for hotel guests and a resting point for passers-by. Elastic architects have created a new focal point by combining exclusive materials with custom made high end design, to deliver a luxurious, yet affable interactive area.
about the project
LOCATION_Athens International Airport
The aspiration of Elastic Architects for the Sofitel Athens International Airport is to combine Hellenic elements with international design, in order to deliver luxury and elegance through intimacy and hospitality. The restaurant concept derives from the name Mesoghaia itself, which in Ancient Cosmography is translated as a center, equidistant to all its peripheral points. The bar and reception areas are inspired by the dynamic aura of Artemis’ Legend.
