I like it, simple terminals and a runway in a good location away from the terminal

Boring designed and it's shame as a new airport with such a simple design. Anyway by judgingthe exterior of the terminal, I'm sure the interior will be just as boring as it's exterior.

the interior is really nice and features the latest technology. One of europe's most modern airports will be operational in march but not open until late summer because the main access road is still incomplete

Check out the interior:

Athens Airport

An airport does not have to be fancy. It has to be functional. Changi Airport at Singapore (one of the best in the world) is as "boring" as you mention.

Today, January 23rd, a Boeing 737-400 took off from Athens Hellinikon and landed at New Athens Intl after it performed some tests to the VOR, ILS and traffic control systems.

There are two runways. The airport is really big and uses the latest technology in all of its systems.
