Euphoria Resort Hotel by MM Group Consulting Engineers

Home > Winners > #67714


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Euphoria Resort

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Hotel

INSPIRATION:
Since the hotel is built in a village that carries the Cretan tradition, the design team sought references in the local architecture and selected lines and materials that reflect the architectural features of the city of Chania, combined with contemporary elements. The forms are inspired by the old Venetian town and harbor of Chania and an attempt was made to implement them in a modern way. The architectural elements refer to the Venetian dockyards with their characteristic domes and triangular ends of the facades, as well as the Venetian wall with its monumental facade.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Situated in Skoutelonas village, Chania, Greece, the hotel is adjacent to the sea and faces the old national road. The hotel complex consists of 8 buildings that are located along the outline of the plot in such a way as to ensure an unobstructed view from all the rooms of the sea or mountains. In the inner part of the plot emphasis is placed to the beach-entry outdoor swimming pool, which is positioned in such a way that it creates visual continuity with the sea and the sense that the sea extends into the hotel complex.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Euphoria, a word of Greek origin, means joy, a state of wellness. Having this in mind, along with the famous Greek hospitality, the design team created a hotel that welcomes the visitor to a fulfilling experience. The hotel complex, that consists of 8 buildings and a central outdoor pool, provides the visitor with four restaurants, a lounge bar, a pool bar, an indoor heated pool along with a Spa center and gym, a waterpark, shopping area, as well as rooms and suites with private pools and gardens, all carefully designed with a sophisticated and contemporary style.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The hotel's design started in spring 2014 in Chania, Crete, Greece. The construction started in July 2016 and finished in May 2018.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
All hotel buildings are made of reinforced concrete. Most buildings are housed with pitched roofs of concrete, covered with heat-sealing materials. Metal structures, covered with insulation panels, were used for the domes construction. The facades of the hotel are coated with plaster or stone. In the outer space, pergolas are constructed with wooden and metal elements for sun protection. In all buildings, heat-insulating panels of 7 cm and heat-insulated window frames with low-e glazing were placed.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Euphoria Resort was designed to accommodate 290 rooms and 690 beds. The total area of the resort is 65,000 sq.m. The hotel unit has a total of 32,800 sq.m., main and auxiliary spaces and 5,000 sq.m. of water surfaces. A geothermal air conditioning and hot water system was installed by exploiting the heat of pumped groundwater from drilling. Finally, two autonomous photovoltaic fields were implemented to generate electricity of 220kW. The hotel is an A plus energy class building.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
With the aim to create a new destination resort, the design team began their planning by studying the local area. They researched the local architectural features seeking for references, in order to integrate the corresponding elements into the design. In addition, they studied equivalent hotels, in relation to their location, facilities, design and technology used. After configuring the general layout, they sought consultation regarding all hotel departments to develop more innovative solutions both in terms of design and operation and to enhance the building energy efficiency.

CHALLENGE:
A project of such scale and capacity is challenging both in terms of design and construction. The timeframe in which the design and construction had to be completed was limited, therefore, the design team had to take quick and effective decisions. The challenge was to configure a design aesthetically appealing, functional, cost-effective and energy-efficient. Aiming an energy efficient and high-performance building, renewable energy has been used and measures have been applied to reduce energy consumption.
