Villa Brown Ermou is a boutique hotel, located on the pedestrian street of Petraki Street, in the area of ​​Syntagma, Athens and is housed in a 50’s building. The commercial identity for this hotel was to position it as an elegant hotel, with urban origins. In this regard, the models of the French bistrot and of the urban European apartment were the references for the hotel’s design.

On the ground floor, are located the hotel bar and reception area, which were designed as a modern French bistro. The 16 rooms are developed on the 4 upper floors. The main facade opens, creating an extroverted relationship with the sidewalk, while at the back there is a patio that allows natural light to enter the restaurant. The wooden floor, the velvet fabrics, the brass details, the use of white and black marble in the bar and floors, the plaster geometric decorations on the ceiling, the seats and the works of art, contribute to the design approach.
