The new hotel style
Primitive humans were using caves, dark and not comfortable places, but there they could find shelter from the cold and from the wild animals. In the civilization ages they invented the tent, real light and easy transportable shelter, so they could move whenever they want. The tent was also not so comfortable, so over the years, humans started to have sedentary lifestyle. They built their stone and brick houses, which were very comfortable, but they lost their ability to move and to be free. Human population increased and had less and less space for their houses; that’s why they invented at first blocks and then skyscrapers, they were trying to gain space in height, until their homes reach the sky.
This is the current!
… and tomorrow?

Located near Syntagma Square, the central square of Athens, adjacent to The Parliament House and at the foot of the Parthenon, this seven (7) storey building was built in the early 1960s and started life as an office building with retail showroom on the ground floor. The site was bought in its entirety and converted to a boutique hotel in response to the shortage of hotel rooms and the growing need for quality affordable holiday accommodation in central Athens.
The brief required interior architecture, interior design, interior decorating, styling and restoration capabilities.

“Just like the other European capitals such as Rome, Venice, or Barcelona, Paris risks to become a city museum. The increase of tourists in the French Capital causes panic and also leads to a gradual decentralization from the Parisians.
Paris has the largest concentration in m² of museums in the world, nearly 120 museums in total, with many urban areas which tend to be transformed into living conservatories.

Kaleydo Hotel is a hospitality project located in Gili Trawangan island of Lombok, Indonesia. The client asked for a contemporary concept which considers the vernacular character of the area. Without being in so much resemblance of the aesthetics and style of Indonesian architecture, StudiSTAG started analyzing the vernacular in a function and usefulness guidance. A more contemporary approach reached by evaluating the ratios of the vernacular, rationalizing the Indonesian style and using the local techniques and materials.
