托马斯库克酒店家族新的精品酒店Casa Cook酒店坐落在古老的克里特岛海岸的山坡上。建筑与规划由K-Studio设计,室内设计由Annabell Kutucu与LAMBS AND LIONS联合操刀，构思了一个现代主义的低矮别墅度假村，拥抱着一片未受破坏的克里特岛海岸的山坡。
The boutique branch of the Thomas Cook Hotel family, Casa Cook, continues to grow with the opening of Casa Cook Chania on the Greek island of Crete. Interior design studio Lambs and Lions Berlin worked with Greek architects K-studio and interior stylist Annabell Kutucu, conceiving a modernist village of low-slung villas that hug the hillside of an untouched stretch of Cretan coast.
The Modernist-inspired smooth concrete and timber-clad boxes balance and cantilever from floating walls made of local stone, descending a gentle hill toward the beach. Shady retreats, the rooms are positioned with double-aspect interiors that extend onto private corner pool terraces with views to the sea and courtyard gardens.
Midcentury interiors feature stone floors, dark timber, earthy textured linens and rattan. Narrow apertures cut through the stone facades allow natural light to illuminate those corners of the villa not surrounded by full height windows. The sharp angles and Brutalist abundance of cool grey concrete and stone is offset by lush tropical landscaping and the tribal appearance of woven cane and straw outdoor furnishings.
Communal structures including the hotel restaurant, bar, and art house are set along the beach, and therefore bolder and better prepared for the exposure to salt and wind that the villas higher up along the hill are protected from. Despite private pools, visitors are encouraged to venture down the verdant path that winds through the villas to the beach.
