The existing hotel has been demolished for a new brand. The neighborhood borders, sea-view and panorama of historical site preshaped the body of the hotel. Two contrasts were used for a celebration of its new coming.
The first one is, the inclination of the site has not been used as a topographic figure. On the contrary to natural decline, it is starting from moderate scale entrance to a landmark tower ending on the frontline.
The second contrast is the optical illussion of the facade. Repetitive partitions seperating the transparent room cells were emphasized with dark&light colors, rectangular&angular inclination, flat&texturized surface alternating both on horizontal and vertical directions. On the twisting main body, the sunlight and shade has several effects on this theme.
