Radisson Blu Hotel,
2015 - 2018
Area: 20.000 sqm
The new Radisson Blu business Hotel in the port area of Larnaca marks the beginning of the rehabilitation of this underdeveloped area and sets the paradigm for the future seafront development.
It is strategically located on the north edge of the city behind the commercial port and on the southern end of a 4 km beach front zone, currently occupied by petrol and gas storages, currently undergoing a rehabilitation master plan. The project is acting as a catalyst for the upgrading of the area.
The project is compacted within the limited urban plot of 5600 m² and it has been conceived as a synthesis of 3 basic volumes. The base plinth of 5 levels and two detached towers above, one of 16 levels to the east facing the sea and the second of 12 levels to the west. This differentiation of the volume of the building was done in order to achieve a sense of lightness and verticality.
