Easy Hospitality project

Hospitality now comes in a more... private tone

In recent years, the tourism industry, and particularly the hospitality sector, has made a shift in “being together”, with hotels evolving into collaborative spaces, where users are co-habiting harmoniously and getting rich in experiences within alternative and special accommodations.

Thus, the construction of new hotels, the renovation of existing ones, the conversion of listed buildings, blocks of flats and apartments from the 1960s and the 1970s into hospitals and hostels, tend to incorporate flexible and adaptable spaces, offering a different visit experience.

Looking at these substantial changes in hospitality, ASPASIA TAKA architects creative lab designs the EASY HOSPITALITY project to be presented at the Hotelia 2018 exhibition and the “DPOINT design section is here” section in particular, at the Thessaloniki International Exhibition Centre from Friday the 9th to Sunday the 11th of November 2018.

EASY HOSPITALITY combined (living, working, entertaining & making experiences)


The EASY HOSPITALITY project is an open and free standing pavilion, with intense interactive elements and boundaries diffused between its uses.

The main concept is based on the idea of a public core, a circular and dynamic meeting space that grows radially, with the levels of privacy increasing as you move away from the centre of the pavilion.

The main concept is based on the idea of a public core, a circular and dynamic meeting space that grows radially, with the levels of privacy increasing as you move away from the centre of the pavilion.

From there, one can visit the other sections, from the closest to the centre to the most remote. Within a very short radius, are located the kitchen, the shared living room and the work area. The roof installation follows the intensity of the movement and the levels of privacy in the space.

On either side of the public space is located the sleeping and short-term residence unit, combined with a more private living room. On the other side, can be found the humid spaces and a small media room, to display information material on the EASY HOSPITALITY project.

The materials proposed are natural and raw. These are wood, cement blocks, cement mortar, metal and planting in combination with earth colours.
