Ethos Vegan Suites Hotel

Named Ethos Vegan Suites, the small hotel occupies a typical, 20th-century house in the Santorini capital, which was entirely renovated by Kapsimalis Architects.

The hotel, which has five suites, was designed around an "eco-friendly, cruelty-free, vegan approach concept". It also has a reception room and kitchen, which serves vegan food for the guests.

Parapets, cornices and walls were all removed from the structure to create the clean lines used in Greek architecture.A range of ceramic claustra was used to build perforated walls that allow natural light to spread across the hotel, as well as create semi-private areas.

At the entrance to the building, there is a semi-outdoor area that serves as a welcome space to the hotel.Two of the five suites are located on the ground floor, while the remaining three are on the first. All rooms have access to a pool, with one located on the ground floor and one located on the first-floor terrace.

The hotel is paved with terracotta tiles on the stairs and terrace.The hotel was built using vegan, recyclable and locally-sourced materials and furniture.Interior walls were lined with hemp, sand and cobs, while the building is furnished with ceramics, oak wood and linen.

Kapsimalis Architects also focused on biophilic design, using earth tones and natural materials, and adding water features and plants to the space."The core concept of the design was to utilise and improvise the existing building's structure in the dense village of Fira, which had undergone multiple changes and additions through time," added Kapsimali.

Kapsimalis Architects decorated the rooms with ceramic claustra.The owners chose the building for its structural integrity, suitable layout and the typical characteristics found in the island's architecture following the 1956 Santorini earthquake.As part of the reconstruction, the building's appearance was stripped for a simplistic look that aligns with the cubist architecture in Fira.
