Softades beach, Larnaca-Cyprus.
Our new project: an innovative 200 apartment resort with open theatre/cinema, wine garden, light park, zen garden spa, commercial areas with restaurants and a private beach.
the inspiration of the project came form the unique stones of the beach near the site. the idea of architecture as sones layed in the field creating their wateer ripples and ecchos- which then become spaces. stones as building put on top of eachother and the effect they create arround them- that was the main concept with which the design of the whole complex was made. even the landscape and natural development took the same concept as its basic expression of the site. open door areas for wine-beer gardens, light forrest with its lights installations, an eco garden where natural organic fruits and vegetables are being grown, an open air theatre and cinema with its huge green spaces for different activities- day and night.
the buildings are all located around main pools and water/ garden wriples which underline the main design concept, following into the building and ints interior as well. the openings and architectural element and decorations are all comming from the world of stones and rocks with their effect on water. the complex has a private beach and promenade designed for the public to visit in different houes of the day. moshe katz architect designed and planned this complex with the intention to connect to the local unique language and elements through architecture expressing their max. desire and dream- a stone dreams to be a building!
