The Anthemion house, founded in 2018, is located in Kavala. The hotel is housed in a building, originally built in 1927, that has been renovated to reflect its architectural heritage, while imbuing a fresh breath of contemporary sophistication.
Most of the original walls were preserved, adopting the seven rooms layout to the existing floor plans. The reception and the breakfast room are found on the ground floor, along with one of the five Anthemion studios. A small patio was created, sideways of the building. The rest of the hotel rooms have been shared around the lobbies on the 1st and 2nd floor.
The wooden floor was replaced and geometric cement tiles were used for bathrooms and common spaces. Two shades of blue and green were chosen, both in communal spaces and in the rooms, highlighting either the ceiling, or one side of each room.
The original doors of the building were restored and used as the guest room doors, while new metal ones with bespoke brass and white knobs were designed for the communal spaces and each of the seven bathrooms.
Entering the building you find the imposing metal sliding door of the reception, nod to the geometries of the early twentieth century. Inside the rooms, semicircular rattan headboards are mixed with wooden furniture, blue or green lacquered cupboards and brass details creating a light and cozy environment.
