Aeolos

hotel room

Architect Stamatis Kleanthis (1802-1862) designed Aeolos Hotel, which was built between 1835 and 1837. The exterior of the two-story building is simple, and it originally had 25 rooms. Aeolos Hotel was the first building in Athens specifically constructed as a hotel. The wrought-iron railing of the vaulted lintel, which bears the date “1837,” still stands out.
The historic Aeolos Hotel will be renovated into a boutique hotel with seven distinct rooms. We were tasked with designing a room for each of the gods of wind in ancient Greek religion. Our concept for the room centered around the historical elements of the building and its surrounding area. Overlooking the Tower of Winds in Monastiraki, the room was designed to showcase the wind and air flow. As such, there are no corners; only curves that connect the various elements.
