The main concept for the Contessina Suites was derived from the client’s deep love and appreciation for the traditional architecture and old spirit of Zante. Old remnants, elements that once served as local references for the island were translated into a modern architectural language, the dialect with which the Contessina Suites were designed.

The hotel is developed around the central public pool area, resulting in a somewhat introverted character that serves a dual purpose; maintaining the privacy of the residents, but also creating an urban microcosm, an oasis floating on the water with arches, arcades and balconies.
