Unique Redesign Of The Hotel On Mykonos Island In Greece
KLab Architecture has designed the Cocoon Suites, which are part of the Hotel Andronikos on Mykonos. Mykonos, one of the most famous Greek islands, hosts up to 50000 people during summertime. The island features a unique natural environment, as well as uncommon vernacular architecture. KLab architecture has set about renovating the hotel built in 1990 and has already redesigned 13 rooms out of 57, embodying modern interpretation of vernacular cycladic architecture. Having at their disposal a modest budget, designers managed to create a sexy but pure, a vibrant but calm, a modern but classic room. The room’s interior features irregular unaligned walls; plaster, bamboo canes, plasterboard, glass, pebbles, mirrors and cement based flooring were used in unconventional ways and combinations. A sense of serenity and intimacy is created with the help of light, coming through the bamboos, under the furniture, through the reflections of the polygonal mirror.
