Wooden Cave Hotel in Greece

Wooden Cave hotel suite in Greece is made from over 1,000 pieces of hand-cut spruce

Sinuous spruce-wood walls wind around this cosy cave-like suite that Tenon Architecture has created for a resort hotel in southern Greece.

Wooden Cave is part of Hyades Mountain Resort in the village of Trikala Korinthias, which lies on the slopes of Mount Kyllini.

The suite sits at an altitude of 1,100 metres and has impressive views of the surrounding landscape, but Tenon Architecture was brought on board to revive its interiors.

The studio decided to split the suite into two halves, each completed in different material palettes – the rear half is made almost entirely from wood, and features gently curved walls akin to those on the inside of a cave.

The front half of the suite, which has more traditional linear surfaces, is decked out with ashy black tiles.

“This division intends to create a clear distinction between the hard, ‘protective’ shell and the curved, ‘inviting’ interior, reminiscent of the form of a cave that has been used as a refuge and a haven throughout human existence,” explained the studio.
