It is built in a field of 6000sq.meters with west orientation and panoramic views of the endless blue of the Aegean Sea. With focus on the special character of the hotel, which consists of 6 different buildings, the renovation of some rooms as well as some common areas including the reception and the restaurant located in the pool area were completed. The renovation of the hotel was done with respect to the landscape and the existing buildings. The simple lines of the Cycladic architecture and the white color of the buildings were preserved. Clarity and simplicity were among the main targets. The aim of the study was to upgrade the rooms, create privacy and integrate aquatic elements into them. The purpose of the design was to preserve the traditional Mykonian architecture enriched with modern and industrial design in details such as in showers, wherever possible they were incorporated into the rooms from where the visitor can have unobstructed views of the sea. Private pools or outdoor heated Jacuzzis have been added to the rooms, which are oriented towards the sea. Where this was not feasible, private gardens have been created that once again incorporated some form of aquatic element and were enriched with Mediterranean plants such as olives, rosemary, lavender, reeds, cacti and prickly pear trees.

Auberge Burgundy Boutique Hotel Hermanus - SOUTH AFRICA

Originally settled as a sleepy fishing village, the traveller’s love affair with Hermanus began well over two centuries ago, when the Harley Street doctors of London prescribed its crisp “champagne air” as an excellent remedy for consumption. By the 1920’s, its reputation as the “Riviera of the South” had been well established and hotels began popping up to accommodate the yearly influx of European tourists. Hermanus has been recognised as being one of the best places in the world for land-based whale watching, thanks to the vantage of its seafront cliffs and the abundance of southern right whales frolicking along the shore. Today, visitors and locals alike enjoy the many opportunities for recreation and relaxation found in Hermanus.
