Designed by Greek studio Divercity Architects in collaboration with mplusm, Grace Santorini is a beautiful 20-room hotel with astonishing views. Combining luxury with amazing services, the hotel is highly inviting, particularly if you take in consideration its beautiful swimming pools and welcoming interiors. Here is more from the architects: “The hotel provides a contemporary interpretation of vernacular architecture: economy of space, radical simplicity, and organic forms. Like Santorini’s yposkafa – cave-like dwellings with rounded walls and domed roofs excavated from the rock-face – no furniture is free-standing. Custom-built storage and vanity units are moulded into alcoves. All-white interiors with brushed concrete floors reiterate the trademark whitewashed houses of the Cyclades. The infinity pool’s jagged outline echoes the zigzag paths that criss-cross Santorini’s sheer terrain. Santorini’s hotel rooms are invariably front-loaded to face the view, leaving residents exposed to passers-by. To ensure privacy, fragments of volcanic rock are positioned in the windows of four rooms, interspersed with apertures that provide glimpses to the sea.” Nothing short of mesmerising, the views of this hotel left us speechless, which is exactly why we would love to read what you have to say about this project.
