The project builds upon an urban plan that transforms a former industrial area into a modern, integrated residential and business zone, taking better advantage of the harbour front location.
The project consists of 236 apartments in two U-shaped blocks with inner courtyards opening towards the harbour.
Varying heights of 5 to 8 storeys visually reduce the scale of the project and, along with the thin proportions of the glass partitions, give the white facades a light and graceful appearance.
The entire project, including the projecting bays, is rendered in warm white stucco with teak fenestration, giving the entire project a maritime feel.
