The "Nyx Thessaloniki" hotel is located on Tsimiski Street on the border between the Ladadika and the Ano Ladadika areas. Ladadika has been transformed during the last twenty years to the main entertainment and tourist destination within Thessaloniki City with a strong presence of cafés, bars, restaurants and hotels. Ano Ladadika has experienced a rapid growth during the last three years evolving from a traditional commercial area to an expansion of Ladadika’s tourist and entertainment area.
Design of a 130-room hotel on Tsimiski Street, in the area of Ladadika in Thessaloniki
In this intensely developed touristic area the new hotel is a challenge. It is a building with a capacity of 130 rooms, which at the same time has to cover the tourist need for accommodation as well as the aesthetic criteria. The goal is to create one functional and architectural set, in which the openings and the recessed shapes create a constant dialogue of the vacuum and the full and form the architectural identity of the building.
