    In ancient Greece hospitality was considered an act of virtue. The acceptance of a foreign hosting was called "estian" or "xenizein" or "xenodochein".
  2. ROOM BEDROOM
    Architectural re-interpretation of "xenodochein"; creating a protective shell for the modern traveler’s relaxing, contrary to the roughness of the urban landscape and experience.
  3. “XENODOCHEIN”
    The design of the two levels co-structure the hotel room, attempting to form a hospitable environment.
    Level A: ± 0.00 = organization space
    Level B: = +0.60 shell – dream space.
