I MARINA

A modern Marina By: Mohamed Omar Ahmed Abdalla

The design features state-of-the-art boating and marina facilities and diverse retail, restaurant and recreational public spaces culminating in an elite modern space. The modern aesthetic is achieved by different types of hardscape platforms. In order for users to enjoy a pleasant walk at any time of the day, it was necessary to create a series of shade and shadows by utilizing the landscape design. Trees and palms are planted along the space- these kinds of plantations are easy to acquire, moreover they are easily adaptable to the high salinity levels of the sea, offering great and gentle shading so that users can enjoy their stay during the day. The plant stands are dual functional. One function was to contain the planter on one side, and the other function was to offer a seat for pedestrians. This pattern was repeated on the perimeter low wall that faces the beach, proposing this as a bench to enjoy the horizon.   The longitudinal design of the greenery and the lighting strips along the pathway create a soothing outdoor place at night surrounded by sea views at one of the best spots in Hurghada. A modern style restaurant is built on stilts above the marina with an outdoor area to enjoy your meal with the view.  Key concepts:  Sustaining the sea horizon. Direct access to the open water Open sea horizon throughout the journey Enable access to the marina while maintaining security  Including outdoor small scale events
