• Kaningos 21 Hotel

  • Status: Completed

  • Location: Athens

  • Type: Commercial

Kaningos 21 hotel is located on the northwest corner of Kaningos Square in the centre of Athens. The existing hotel was constructed in1965 and underwent a structural reinforcement and aesthetic refurbishing in 2004.The architectural approach to this project is sculptural. The thick columns and repetitive, recessed openings are giving the impression that the building has been carved out of a mass of stone. These large openings establish a relationship between each room-cell and the city outside.
