With a simple modification, the initial A, taken from Carmen is converted into a sign which represents a tree log and its branches. “Arkhé” or “ἀρχή” is a concept that stems from Greek philosophers, searching for the first principle, the source, the beginning of the universe, with nature as a source of inspiration.
Carmen is also used as a typeface for the accommodation brochures, paired with Vibration Gothic, a reinterpretation of American Type Founders’ Railroad Gothic by Font Bureau. It is also used in a stencil version for signs outside the building.
