Allure Boutique Hotel is located in the center of Lefkas town. It is a city hotel that keeps some of the most traditional architectural elements of the island integrated in a contemporary design. The study concerns the interior and exterior planning of a preexisting shell that was turned into a hotel. The street where the entrance of the hotel is located is a quiet street with houses and local stores. The hotel welcomes the visitor through its main entrance with a green area open to the street without a fence, offering to the neighborhood an element of vegetation. Higher plants create a boundary in front of the two verandas at the ground floor offering the visitor a private space.
There are four types of rooms (14 rooms in total), each one of them with its own color variations and architectural design elements, offering the visitor a variety to choose from. So the visitor can choose to stay at the dark or light blue, pink or green room, all inspired by the colors or Lefkas. The dark and light blue stands for the sea and sky, the green for the island’s vegetation, and the pink for the colors of the facades of traditional houses of the city. The colors of the facade and the proportions of the openings follow the rules of the architecture of the city. The lighting was an important tool in the design of the hotel. Hidden lighting and unique light fixtures creates the atmosphere needed for a hospitality space.
