Neo Hotel is situated on the outskirts of Fira, Santorini, blending seamlessly into a densely populated residential area. The hotel, designed by Kapsimalis Architects, offers captivating views of the sea to the North and East, as well as the charming village to the South and West.
The minimalist architectural design includes two floors and a basement. The ground floor features 12 rooms, the first floor has 8 rooms, and the basement houses the reception, restaurant, spa/gym, and additional amenities. The design creatively integrates the hotel into its surroundings, combining aesthetics with functionality.
The hotel room layout takes inspiration from Tetris, featuring various room shapes stacked to create outdoor spaces with diverse vantage points and natural light. Furniture, lighting, and decor elements seamlessly extend from the pure white interiors to the outdoor areas. The basement introduces a rich interplay of colours within the predominantly white interior shell.
This collection of white cubist prisms, partitions, and bursts of colourful outdoor furniture, intertwined with greenery and water features, enriches the surrounding residential landscape, creating a harmonious coexistence.
