While searching for an appropriate connection between another project on the edge of Portorose and the primary city axis and seashore space, we came to the realization that the space next to the primary axis was the one least defined in the centre of town. Current state and urban documents both demonstrate lack of ideas in organizing a new gravitational nucleus on a potentially large area. Integration of two different owners' plots opened the possibility of arranging a new/the only square next to the promenade, framed by two adjoining buildings. The building next to the promenade is envisioned as a representative retail palace with exclusive office or apartment areas on the top floor. The other building enfolds the square from behind, its public ground floor spaces open to the square, and upper floors can house office, apartment, hotel or various other programmes. Below the entire area a garage with 300 parking spaces is arranged, alleviating parking pressure on the promenade. The square's positioning indents into urban fabric to the north, drawing neat to the Auditorium Building and the future Valeta Multi-storey Car Park at the back of the area, thus connecting them to the forefront of central activities.
