“The Stanley Suites” refers to the renovation of three rooms of ‘The Stanley Hotel”, a 4* city hotel in the center of Athens. The project implemented the creation of three suites, serving the high demands and expectations of the modern tourist. Our main design intent was to create unified spaces, translucence being the main element, while achieving functional and aesthetic flow. The materials used balanced in a game of textures and colors, offering the required sense of luxury that befits a modern city hotel in Athens.
Having as spatial boundaries the hotel’s existing adjacent rooms as well as the structural and HVAC grid, we sought to apply as much as possible the idea of an open floor plan to these specific rooms. Two of the three suites operate completely autonomously and are identical in layout and design. They consist of a single space with successive zones of a bar, bedroom and living room, while they are separated from the open bathroom space by the headboard’s structure, through elements of translucency and opacity. The third suite is essentially a two-bedroom suite with the possibility of an internal connection, consisting also of a sitting area, which is separated from the bedroom through a sliding partition of fluted glass. Inside the bedroom, an impressive headboard separates the sleeping area from that of the dressing area. The bathroom, respectively, is functionally isolated from the bedroom, through a composition of translucent and opaque elements.. Very important was also the choice of fluted glass, as a semi-transparent element, offering the sense of visual continuity and connection of spaces, however, distorting the forms depending on their proximity to it, making it ideal for separating individual spaces and especially the bathrooms, where privacy is essential. Concluding, k-division’s proposal aimed at the creation of a theatrical setting, presenting a scenographic environment that enhances the visitor’s experience, stimulating his senses through a combination of textures, colors and light.
