With incredible vistas of the Caldera Cliffs, our approach to the interior planning and design of this space was driven by the desire to create a relaxing tone to complement the natural beauty of the landscape. Drawing inspiration from the Caldera's colour palette and traditional craft culture, a strong nostalgic thread is woven throughout the hotel. A collage of refined textures, genres of furniture and commissioned artworks spill into rooms each bearing the identity of a a different traditional profession. The overall atmosphere is one of warmth and elegance.
The former island residence of an art collector offers a spectacular backdrop of endless blue water. Asked to create a sense of luxury, familiarity and serenity, our design intent was to build upon the home's illustrious history. Existing furniture is complemented by contemporary pieces and commissioned design objects; crisp white bathrooms are punctuated by bespoke iron wall accessories and marble trays. The atmosphere of The Vasilicos, like the highly considered service concept, is an enchanting balance of the simple and complex.
An old mansion situated on an expansive historic property, Divercity Architects' respectful renovation and inspired extension was driven by the desire to create a dialogue between the past and present, giving life to once-in-a-lifetime hotel experience. The expansive property provides a serene setting for its guests with the outstanding gardens and the water breathing life to the whole property. Guest rooms exude comfort and personality, while praising the building's origins. We developed a narrative led by vintage pieces; meticulously sourced from the owners eclectic collection. Rigorous attention was paid to all details, resulting in a completely bespoke design that is both refined and functional. Commissioned artworks - curated by Double Decker, aim to emanate the richness of the hotel's gardens and the intriguing building's history, giving the guest a precious sense of place.
Once a tobacco merchant's house, the thoughtful restoration and extension of this contemporary hotel involved collaboration from its passionate owners.

The result exudes an atmosphere of comfort and personality; offering the very best from a modern city hotel.

Hidden in the majestic fir forest of Parnassos, the sustainable revitalisation of this wooden chalet offers its family of four a space to retreat and recharge. Cueing inspiration from the locale, the interiors feature a warm palette that complements the framed vistas of fir trees. Thoughtful repositioning of the main entrance of the house, and the sequencing of rooms: a bathroom that appears to extend into nature, as well as a bright kitchen and dining room that spills into the living room to create a natural hub of the home. Carefully considered sustainable materials and processes continue the chalets dialogue with the surrounding natural world.
Situated on Kanari Street, the bustling heart of the Kolonaki area, this residential revitalisation project was headed by A2 Architects. Epitomizing an urban oasis, we referenced a warm monochromatic palette accented by pockets of darkness and greens, creating respite from the busy outside and indulging the need for relaxation. Mid-century modern furniture juxtaposed with contemporary bespoke items enhance individuality to the interiors. The personality and ambience of the apartment is both refined and homelike; an indulgent retreat for the busy urban dweller.
Situated in the historic pedestrian centre of Messolonghi Sacred Town, we were tasked with the brief to develop a new identity for a charming bistro. Referencing the effortless elegance of classic French style, a restrained palette of dusty blue with accents of black iron, bronze and chevron, set the tone. The story begins with the installation of a new corner facade, continues along the 9 metre long bar, and is punctuated by an intimate arrangement of twin banquettes. The juxtaposition of wine glasses suspended above a marble counter are a delightful prelude to a spiral staircase encased within a hand-crafted metal cage. Play with materials and textures grow into the mezzanine - a space covered with seamless laser cut timber panels inset with bronze details. Reflecting its signature Ω, the selected artwork for the gallery walls act as the elegant end titles of this story.
Located on the top floor of the Onasis Cultural Centre in Athens, Hytra Restaurant and Bar is known for its two Michelin stars and title as one of the best restaurants in Greece. Divercity Architects drew inspiration from the distinctly Greek practice of spontaneous gatherings between strangers. This warmth is echoed in the central bar which serves as a dining area. Our aesthetic approach was derived from the restaurant's identity, based on the contemporary interpretation of the Greek cultural and gastronomical heritage. The composition of materials, textures and objects that populate the space balance the rough and refined, traditional and modern, culinary experience and cultural practice.
Bombyx is a showroom dedicated to supplying distinctive design-led furniture, lighting, and accessories. We were tasked with the visual revitalisation of the store; creating a narrative that traversed several design genres.

A fascinating, but cohesive aesthetic that inspires the curiosity of its visitors.
