The White Palace

Rethymon, Greece

Landscapes of contrast define ultra modern makeover

Maintaining a presence for the creative duration, Scape provided Concept Design to ensuring the construction deadline was met & the vision maintained.

El Greco was a 1970’s built hotel to be refurbished into The White Palace, an elegant & contemporary resort. With a time frame of sixteen weeks, the solution was the conception of a new arrival pavilion, white contemporary architecture complimented by a refined landscape scheme. This approached emphasized the contrast between the white vernacular of traditional Greek architecture and the intense, crystalline blue of the adjacent Mediterranean Sea.
