Hotel Grande Bretagne

Location:  Athens
Designer: Pandelis Massouridis/HBA 

Set in the heart of Athens adjacent to the parliament building, this multi-award winning hotel went through a major refurbishment for the 2004 Olympics, when it was given a new façade, new rooms and a new Winter Garden. The public areas have an atmosphere of classical understated luxury, which is enhanced by the lighting. Every effort was made to design a scheme to fit within the constraints of the existing fabric, minimising the light fixtures visual impact whilst maximising their effect.
