Customer: Municipality of Piran, Slovenia
Project: conceptual design and studies, 2011
The current gravel area in front of Marina Portorož becomes a new centre of Lucija, and some new piers are added. The existing channel, the only visible remain of the nowadays saltplants, is prolonged in a way to close the ring around the Portorož marina. In the channel expansions a new marina, as well as the communal piers, arise. Next to the channel is a precious centrally located area, dedicated to facilities for central activities. With the proposed regulation Lucija, at this point totally cut-off from the sea - regardless of its vicinity - regains this connection, and the new coastline becomes a new urban-recreational Lucija centre.
