Astir Palace Vouliagmeni is a historic exclusive resort on the coastline of Athens. Located on the peninsula of Mikro Kavouri in the area of Vouliagmeni, the project involves the regeneration of the hotel complex and its historic beachfront.
The development will be realized in two phases: Phase A includes the renovation of the two hotels Arion and Nafsika, as well as the bungalows and beachfront area. Phase B consist of the development of private villas on the south part of the peninsula. The protection and regeneration of the environment and existing landscape is of high priority, and thus, an Environmental Impact Assessment of the project has already been realized.
The landscape design aims to enhance the presence of the existing Mediterranean pine forest in the area. It creates outdoor spaces in direct interaction with nature, where the sense of the natural landscape is prevailing. The project aspires to create a sense of place, connect to the local identity and history of the site, while creating a high-end, luxurious resort, among the most prestigious ones in Europe.
