Before After

Dexamenes°°

From WineTanks into Hotel Suites.

Dexamenes, built in late 1920’s, is indicative of the industrialization of the long-standing wine-making tradition of the wider region. The history of Dexamenes dates back to the “Era of Currants”. Since the liberation of Greece in 1830s, the cultivation of currants took on impressive dimensions and currants were the main export product of the Greek Kingdom. But when the “Currants’ Crisis” broke out in 1910s in Greece, the trade of currants collapsed and there was a need to convert the unsold stock of currants into alternative products, such as wine.

Nikos Karaflos, the owner and visionary of Dexamenes°°, originally contacted k-studio architects several years ago with an idea to transform an abandoned wine factory on the west coast of mainland Greece, into a hotel.  

From our eco-friendly architecture and renewable energy sources to our commitment to minimizing waste, conserving natural resources, supporting the community, and practicing regenerative agriculture, we strive to create a harmonious balance between luxury and conscious responsibility.

Dexamenes°° offers various types of accommodation. 

34 ex WineTanks and 2 ex ChemLabs have been converted into meaningful – luxury Suites. 

Interconnecting options available, too.

Nikos Karaflos "Engaging the past with the present. Respecting materials and history of the existing abandoned factory."

We are very fortunate to live in an area that is mainly agricultural. Believing in the significance of building communities, our chefs constantly meet young locals that farm and produce what our land is offering its inhabitants for centuries. We prefer local, young and conscious farmers voting against the cruel practices of the massive food industry.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s. When an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker."
