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.

A new world-class hotel and conference/expo center has been proposed for the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
The Silver Pearl Hotel calls for a 1000 plus room luxury property to be located 1 ½ kilometer off shore near Doha. The name of the hotel refers to a structure that will literally rise out of the sea to recall the country’s seafaring and pearl diving history.
New York based architectural firm M. Castedo Architects designed the complex along with a team of world renowned engineering firms. Pending approval, the project would be developed by Katara Hospitality, the premier Qatar hotel developer and operator.

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.

Rehabilitation is a medical term that refers to the dynamic global process oriented to physical and psychological regeneration of the human being. In architecture is associated with the critical process to find the essential elements which are to remain, those that must be removed and new ones, prostheses, which may be added. This intervention follows two options: the archaeological recovery by mimesis with the past and the contemporary statement by comparison with present realities. The goal was to search for a balance between existing and contemporary. The building was designed in the 70s and has features that I was interested in keeping and which influenced the design of the new elements. I perceive the buildings not as static elements but as living structures that interact over us and that are part of the experience both at the program level or its aesthetic expression.
Here there isn’t a dreamlike inspiration. The process is little linear and the final design is the result of several moments of the project with several intersections with the client.
