The Waterfront, Larnaca
The Zenon Consortium
The redevelopment of this 28 hectare site at Larnaca Port and Marina in Cyprus, aims to reinvigorate and transform it into a major cruise and marine destination at the heart of the Eastern Mediterranean, with a mixed-use public waterfront environment rivalling the best the world has to offer. The scheme expands the dilapidated marina to a 950 berth state-of-the-art facility and converts the existing commercial port to combine commercial, mega-yacht and cruise facility uses. The over-arching architectural concept for this complex project is for the buildings to share a ‘weightless dynamic’, using mass and folding surfaces to create a rich, organic, harmonious new architecture for Larnaca.
