Winner: Leisure and wellness interior of the year 2019. The Euphoria Spa by decaARCHITECURE is the centrepiece of the Euphoria Retreat, the first holistic wellness destination in Greece.
The visitors' entrance is underground and consists of carved spaces where elliptical geometries of different scale intertwine and guide the visitor through constantly changing catacomb-like passages containing the reception, consultation and treatment spaces, and changing rooms.
The architectural design and supervision of the Euphoria Retreat was a collaboration between Natalia Efraimoglou & Partners and decaARCHITECTURE. For the Euphoria Spa, which is a distinct building, the design concept was developed by decaARCHITECTURE. The refurbishment of the 1830's Leoncini Mansion was developed by Natalia Efraimoglou & Partners.
