Klima Hotel | Athens
An Eco Hotel in the heart of Athens, that highlights the sustainable development of an Athenian neighborhood, and provides a set of experiences inspired by the background of its Greek/French owners, through design, food, and art.
What we did for this project:
Design & Operational Briefs
Year of Operation
For this project our purpose, was to create the perfect “Klima”, for the visitors, while honoring the Greek/French owners, their taste, and their eco conscious mentality.
The first stage of our Services, which includes the Research & the Typology Study, helped the Hotel Owners take their final decisions regarding the hotel's Typology (type of property, room types, grounds, etc) and its main Features and Facilities, aiming to increase the hotel's ADR as well as its sales potentials from its various departments and services.
During the Hotel Concept Development process, we specified the main idea and the narrative of the new hotel, which will allow it to stand out from the competition. At the same time, we specified all the new hotel's experiences, services, and operation model, in order to help the architectural and design teams to capture all the requirements for its final design.
Hotel Branding & Implementation
In order to have a fuller image of the Concept, we have created an initial branding for the new hotel that captures its feel and essence, and which must be taken into account during the design process. At the same time, we presented a series of indicative applications and implementations of the branding, in order to convey in a more tangible way the feeling that will be exuded during the hotel's visual communication.
The word ‘Klima’ (κλίμα) is the Greek word for Climate. Evidently, the word ‘Climate' in English as well as the word ‘Climat’ in French, have as their origin this ancient Greek word. It is a word that sounds nearly the same in Greek and in French, thus uniting the two languages and reflecting their relationship. Moreover, the word Klima makes a strong and clear reference to Eco and sustainability, thus supporting the hotel’s main operations feature.
The proposed Logo was a distinctive symbol that narrates the hotel’s two main features: Eco and Modern. The colors must be inspired by nature, as well as the main colors used in the hotel’s design (green, beige, white, light brown, grey). We don’t want just the expected Eco colours, but a more contemporary approach that includes more earthy colours.
For the completion of the project, Destsetters collaborates with esteemed Architectural and Design teams, in the context of the thorough application of the concept to the overall experience, the correct specification of the anticipated operational needs, and the new hotel's commercial potentials. The Architectural & Design teams are selected by the investors/project owners and play an active part in the overall decisions regarding the development of the new property.
