WATG completed the redesign of Mitsis Summer Palace on the Greek island of Kos…
Situated on a raised site over a Blue Flag awarded shoreline, the recently revamped Mitsis Summer Palace flaunts 360-degree sights over the Aegean Sea towards Nissiros Island and the Bay of Kardamena, and offers a remarkable direct viewable pathway right to the bank of Turkey. Entrusted with the developmental redesigns was the multidisciplined configuration firm WATG.
Exhibiting the full suite of the association’s services, the venture – which included advancements to the café and pool pleasantries – consolidated strategy, arranging, design, scene engineering and Wimberly Interiors to accomplish a completely incorporated, considered space that praises the dazzling environment while adjusting superbly with Mitsis Hotels’ responsibility to making exceptional travel experiences.
“The hillside situation of the hotel, with expansive views across the Aegean, was theinspiration for creating a space which seamlessly connects the guest with the horizon,” said Georgina Langridge of WATG’s London Landscape Architecture group who was granted a Hotel Designs’ 30 Under 30 prior this year. “From a design perspective, it was all about connecting visitors with the surrounding sea and celebrating the Kos sunset. In contrast to other pools on the island, we made a bold move with the colour palette and opted for a dark tile – something that is quite unique to the property, which has bold features throughout including teal sun lounges and coralaccents in the restaurant.”
