Pagostas Guesthouse in Patmos by Studio Pale

Pagostas Guesthouse by Greek designer Leda Athanasopoulou { Studio Pale } is hidden in the Byzantine citadel of Chora, Patmos. Built by Parthenios Pagostas in 1597, the house has been transformed into a private sanctuary. The restoration involved a detailed study of the building’s history and architecture to reinstate the original layout and character, following a series of interventions over the years.
Locally sourced Patmian stone, weathered marble, and naturally oxidised iron were introduced to complement the patina of the traditional architecture. As a modern interpretation of monastic living, the interiors make a virtue of reclaimed materials. Opaline lamps, marble sinks and iron bedframes are respectfully repurposed. Built-in seating and bespoke joinery are made locally by master craftsmen. Traditional Greek elements such as hand-loomed textiles, large antique olive jars, vintage ceramics and lanterns from Lesvos emphasise the sense of place.
