In order to build the Dexamenes Seaside Hotel, an extensive transformation was not necessary in terms of construction — considering the existing cluster of 1920s wine tanks were already in existence. Respecting the integrity of the buildings’ industrial heritage was simple in the conversion into a beachfront retreat: reuse and repurpose existing site materials where needed, make new interventions with local materials, and keep most of the structure as is. Despite its remote location, Dexamenes has become a cultural touchstone for the area: with unique and immersive art and design experiences, wine tasting performances, sound healing events, and other singular activities.
