Dhermi Plaza Hotel

The Dhermi Plaza Hotel has been designed as a 5 star hotel along Dhermi's promenade. The project optimizes the square meters available within the plot whilst merging with the context, and offers publically accesible facilities. It's elongated volume is situated ideally between the beach to the south and the mountains to the north, and is characterized by a dynamic facade. The shading system, composed by double-facing sliding shutters, plays with the shadows created by the thin walls. This creates a sense of movement, and reveals the life inside the building, making the hotel guests the 'accomplices' of the architecture. The hotel hosts different functions which can be separated if necessary, such as the restaurant, spa and beauty salon on the -1 floor level;5 shops, a pool bar, a swimming pool, a bar and the hotel lobby on the ground floor level; and an array of variously sized rooms on the first, second and third floor. The top floor has been designed as an active neighborhood / village, with various leisure facilities for both adults and children. It stands out from the rhythm of the facade, and offers the guests panoramic views The hotel grounds have been designed so as to offer a range different sports activities, from swimming in the 25 m pool to playing basketball on the shaded field.
