The study area is located along the seaside in a length of 5 kilometres, including ‘The forest of Soda’ Area from west, till ‘The Tunnel’ Area north direction. The seaside line is 5km long and it includes the touristic port of the city, which is a very important zone of this study. Analyzing the existing situation, we notice several problems, which are the staring points of our proposal. Some of those issues are: -The lack of proper infrastructure. This one can be noticed in the fact that the site area is fractionated in 3 main areas, The Old Beach area, The Port area and The New Beach area. This three areas have no organic connection with each other. -Urbanization. This is an issue that can be noticed in the old beach area, where we can find residential buildings without a correct height regularity, positioned without a proper logic unifying them. There are also 1-2floor buildings, which have a lot of infrastructure or accessibility difficulties. -The nearness with the road. This can be noticed more in the New Beach area, which has not a wide line for public beaches. This road closeness brings a lot of problems like acustic and air pollution for the pedestrian promenade and for the public beach nearby. - Inappropriate intervention on the coast line. c. Concept idea The development of concept-idea comes as a result of the aforementioned analysis of problems and some key principles on which developes further the study. Among them we can mention: 1- Saving natural coast line (where possible) 2- Preservation of natural sand parts that can be used for public beaches in summer 3- The Port opening to the city 4-Line continuation of the promenade along the entire coast without interruption 5-Urbanization of the area from the Forest of Soda. 6-The use of elements or structures to increase the value or historical monuments or buildings of the city buildings without competing them with the new objects 7-Creating functional space throughout the year Read Less
