Dexamenes is an architectural slice of Greek trading history, sitting quietly on one of the most unspoiled and beautiful stretches of coastline in the western Peloponnese. Inside an abandoned wine factory set directly on the sea, the property offers guests the singular hospitality experience of sleeping inside old wine tanks from the 1920s. Alongside the strong history and raw beauty of existing buildings, coupled with the contemporary architectural preferences, the new design complements their brutality with elegant interventions and transforms their austere functionality into a place of calm, comfort and relaxation.
Sharing a similar view, Demetrios created a geometric art installation based on the Greek ideas of symmetry and asymmetry. His main artistic conceptualization was to transform this unorthodox contrast into an unprecedented, yet harmonious, piece of art that explores the dimensions of line and space in a pioneering way. Rooted in the fundamental principles of nature, simplicity, and geometry, Demetrios’ creative vision extended beyond the installation to include a collaborative t-shirt design, seamlessly aligning with his artistic ethos.
