Xenia Palace Hotel
The renovation of the 5 * Hotel Xenia Palace in Portaria, Pelion, predicted, except the renovation of the main building, the redesign of the total outside area. The LRA studio designed all of the surrounding area in the front and back of the hotel, taking into consideration and incorporating into the design the existing stoneworks. The free form pool dominates as a central element in the backyard, the surrounding area of which, besides the daily use by the bathers, also aims at welcoming social events. The pool bar design, uses traditional materials and building styles. The plantings were in close harmony with the landscape of Pelion.
