The present thesis’s subject deals with the design of a hotel in the ski center “Agriolefkes” of Pelion, which will be built on the slope of the mountain and its roof will be a ski slope at the same time. In particular, the project’s goal is to integrate the hotel, of which the roof constitutes part of the slope, to the landscape but also do some interventions that will lead to a general reformation of the ski center. This dual nature of the building aims to create a hotel that will be in harmony with the natural landscape and also attract tourism.
The reason why i chose this subject is on the one hand the specificity of the location, the rare beauty and diversity of the landscape in relation to the other ski centers of Greece and the fact that Pelion is a major tourist destination and on the other hand my personal experience in this ski center.
Having studied the area and noticed the problems and potentials that exist, the project attempts to take advantage of the benefits of the location and the view over the Pagasitikos Bay, the city of Volos and the Aegean Sea to the use of the hotel throughout the year and not just during the winter months that are indicated for skiing.
