This fact called for a platform secured from the high water. The border between the “platform” and the beach outlines the embankment which is the main pedestrian alley connecting all the functions of the complex that are evenly distributed around the territory.

The major public space of the complex is a swimming pool with deck chairs, a playground and sports facilities. The common lobby unites the spa-complex and the hotel with rooms exposed to the river.

 

 

 

 

We preserve a fragment of the natural terrain and carve a landscape park out of the platform, with lounge zones and vista points. The plot is framed by private villas of various typologies.
