RSBS is located in Peloponnese, in a south-facing area, with the western side almost perfectly aligned with the sea level and the eastern side with a significant difference in elevation, thus creating a steep rocky coastline. The design exploits the southern orientation of the coastal front and the difference in altitude between the two ends of the plot, while based on the particular characteristics of the Mediterranean climate and topography, such as the hilly terrain, the sea breeze and the natural lighting.
The new resort aims to create a whole, integrated into the natural environment: the buildings are scattered across the landscape, leaving the space in between free to develop clusters of greenery. The general design is formulated on the basis of synthetic flow lines, inspired by the organic vocabulary of the nearby stream and shoreline systems, implying a coherent unity consisting of a series of paths and continuous stops. The guiding lines act as a backbone, adapting accordingly, rows of trees, low vegetation, paths and water features, which in turn form suitable escapes to the sea, ensuring privacy between the individual buildings. A synthesis is therefore attempted that aims to blend with existing environments, enhance local character and landscape ecology.
