NEW MARILLIA VILLAGE. THE PILOT SUITES.
Marillia Village Apartment’s & Suites. A hospitality settlement rooted in the theriac earth of Perivolos, next to one of the most famous black sandy beaches of Santorini, hidden into an overgrown Mediterranean garden. A pocket memory for its visitors for over 26 years. An enclave of offering, creating and constant envision for the family of the owners and its employees.
The Marillia Village wishes to redefine the experience of hospitality to its guests, with the launch of two set design suites, which are the first step towards a comprehensive reform of the hotel that will follow on 2020. From the beginning of the architectural synthesis and the decorative philosophy to the photographic setting of the spaces, the design had the role of (scenic) scenographic touch. At the outside of the main building materials are the traditional coloured plaster, the stone tiles and the water elements framed by the artificial rock simulating the black volcanic stone. Inside, the floors are covered by stone tiles· the walls and ceilings are painted with natural kourasanit powder in off-white colour palette· the bathrooms are treated as a landscape with internal rocks· the carefully selected furniture, the fabrics, the light fixtures and the designed decorative elements with a soothing colour palette have the role of transforming the suites into warm “homes”· the metallic structures in black matte paint from small scale elements to the sculptural hanging staircase have been designed as conceptualized sculptures. All the above offer a strong sense of connection with the land, history and energy of the unique island of Santorini.
The new Marillia Village pilot suites, respect the memories of its visitors, exploit the new vision of its owners and embrace the ardor of its employees. The new era of hospitality is not based on the “architecture” itself. But rather on the behavior, on the way we look at something, we perceive and live, the quality with which we approach things and people. The time we give to create memories. Feelings.
