The Linear Planning Is Done In Respond To The Topography Of The Site. Since The Site Was A Bit Challenging With Just A Small Portion As Sandy Beach And The Rest As The Sloppy Rocky Beach, The Zoning Is Done Accordingly. The Modular Planning Is Done With Respect To The Context And Most Of The Building Is Hidden Creating Minimum Visual Impact. The Project Introduces Water Sport Facilities To The Public In Order To Provide Them An Incentive To Visit The Sea And Not Just To Get Tanned.
