The concept of the complex is derived from surrounding natural environment and program tectonics. Narrow strips of apartments, undulating towards the sea, establish the movement of residents from entrance (north) to the large glass partition with sea view (south). Small-scale cellular structure provides for a higher level of individuality and identification. The "strips" system provides unobstructed but sheltered sea views for all apartments, dynamic of composition is derived from the flowing terrain. White volumes with brick roofs reinterpret traditional local building type while faceted slanted roofs lower the overall height. Hotel structure is faceted to follow the terrain, its volume serves as a buffer between the beach and apartments behind.

Invited competition: first place.
