Key Challenges

The building had to adjust to the natural surrounding of the site by its volume, irregular floor plan and height.
Achievement of outstanding levels in terms of sustainability, acoustics, fire protection and aesthetics
Challenging large open project structure with a huge frontal glass surface toward the city and the sea
The deadline for the execution of the work was conditioned by the beginning of the tourist season, and further aggravated by the efforts of installers to implement all the ideas of the architect.
Thanks to the experience and the motivation of the architects, and the preparation of the installers there was no need for improvisations. The key objective regarding interiors was to achieve: luxurious feeling with hotel functionality along with hotel guests experience.
