The scheme renovates a hotel complex, located on Kanapitsa, bay, in Skiathos island, that was operating from 1986 to 2019 as a 3-star hotel, into a high-end contemporary holiday destination, to be included as a member of Radisson hotels group. The main scope of the renovation was to create a luxury environment, offering a wide range of activities, by converting and combining the hotel’s existing facilities with additional common and private areas. Radisson Resort Skiathos consists of two main buildings, in which the hotel’s lobby, restaurant and the 79 guest rooms and 5 suites are accommodated, surrounded by an exuberant Mediterranean forest, overlooking the sea. Entirely renovated, the pool area of the hotel emerges as a series of rock platforms that blend into the landscape, also accommodating a semi-outdoor bar and a spa pavilion, which lightly sits among the natural rocks. Keeping the renovated guests’ rooms located on the complexes’ existing core, made it possible to additionally create and a series of high-end suites on top of the main building, each of them having its exclusive terrace and panoramic views. This special relation of the hotel to the surrounding landscape, also inspired the architectural decisions made regarding its completely renovated façade: its new minimal grid form seeks to be stripped of all ornaments’ including the pre-existing arches and partition walls, leaving new, full-width openings, which let the views of the forest and the sea unhindered, in.
