The project involves the conversion of a former tobacco warehouse into a luxury hotel. The building is located in Thessaloniki and was structurally reinforced in view of its new function. The basic aims of the design were to make the best possible use of the existing building in order to combine the maximum number of hotel rooms with efficient public spaces and hotel facilities, to provide high quality standards, to open certain hotel functions to the general public, and to integrate the interior with the exterior spaces. The design of the fašades respects the vertical configuration and rhythm of the existing building, but at the same time renders it a contemporary character, through the addition of new metal structure elements. Metal balconies are added to certain hotel rooms while metal canopies and grilles protect and shade all windows and doors. The design of the interior combines beige marble with dark-varnished walnut wood for all public areas.
