The project is a Hotel Complex located on the Main Europe Island in the Heart of Europe, part of THE WORLD ISLAND with a total built area approximately 20,000sqm and app.250 rooms.
The IKARIA Hotel will be a wellness hotel inspired by the Greek island Ikaria, home of the mythical Icarus and known for the lifestyle and extraordinary longevity of its residents. IKARIA will immerse its guests into authentic stress free environment where they will be able to be introduced to the island’s culture and social life, discover its secrets of wellbeing, spirituality and fitness and enjoy the traditional cuisine of the Mediterranean Sea.
IKARIA will be housed in a five story sustainable building. The central principle of design is extracted from Ikaria’s impressive landscape, defined by smooth rock surfaces that undulate with light and shadow under Mediterranean sun. The hotel’s spacious atrium extracts the irregular shape of the island itself and carves a gradually diminishing void from the basement through to the terrace.
