New Hotel, Athens,


The New Hotel Athens has recently opened with a complete renovation of the public areas and guest floors as well as the remoulding of the 1960’s facade.

dpa worked closely with the design duo the Campana Brothers from Brazil, client art collector Dakis Joannou and 3SK architects from Athens.

The interior design was conceived along with a group of local young architects taking reference from local modern culture and classic folk reference. The lighting plays an important role in bringing this stage to life in a theatrical way expressing the interesting interior materials textures and colours reflected within the design.

A simple lighting design approach pays homage to the simple 1960’s architecture by exposing the simple guest balconies and entrance.
