Pathos Lounge is pleased to announce that we received the 2016 Hermes Creative Gold Award for pathoslounge.com website (Category: Website - Travel - User Experience). This project earned top honors amongst major international brands and leading Fortune 500 companies.
Pathos Lounge is a one of a kind multipurpose lounge in all of Greece and beyond. Built on a cliff facing the Aegean and the nearby Cycladic islands it is close to Ios port and the Chora offering some of the best unobstructed sunset views in the Cyclades (comparable to the world’s famous Santorini views)
Featuring a hand crafted 500 m2 infinity pool with a marble design, a 400 m2 restaurant with private dining tables with open kitchen and the best elevated views of the crowd below and the Aegean sea. With several bar areas, private tables and lounge chairs around the pool, a restaurant bar, a retail shop, a wine bar and a wine cellar with a private dining area as well as an amphitheater and several private caves that can be used for dining or private events it has amazing capacity to accommodate more than 2500 people and is the perfect place for either a sunset drink, a DJ party, a romantic night out, an exquisite dinner, a Luxurios wedding or a private event.
The construction took more than 4 years covering a total land area of 4000 m2 where everything except wood, iron, glass and cement and some of the marbles, were produced locally. The whole venue was hand made by local craftsmen who manually cut and carved 800,000 extracted stones, which were then laid by hand employing painstaking but authentic and traditional building techniques.
The swimming pools, patios and open ground surfaces were also constructed in the same way by adding 400,000 marble pieces crafted by hand and put together similar to a giant puzzle aimed to create a unique finished product in yet another painstaking building process.
Finally more than 40 ancient (300+ year old) olive trees destined to become firewood were planted around pathos while in an effort to protect the amazing environment all electric or telephone wires and cables were carefully dag underground.
