Public square, pier and island reception
completed, Rovinj, 2019.
The access plateau and pier with a reception for island hotels is located at the entrance to the Monte Mulini zone in Rovinj, near the city's swimming pool Delfin. The building with the reception and café, the square and the reconstructed roads enabled a more functional traffic regulation, and form an attractive and accessible new public space.
The location opens views of the old town of Rovinj, beautiful sunsets and the island of St. Catherine, so the facility with reception and cafe is designed to maximize the view of the sea - catering facilities are located in the glass pavilion, and the service facilities are enclosed indoors.
Within the scope there are three functionally different zones - an access plateau and a pier / dock for ships transporting guests to St. Catherine's, roads that, in addition to the service road for the marina, include essential pedestrian flows at the entrance to the Monte Mulini zone and a catering facility and service amenities.
The plateau is designed as a public square, a fully public space accessible to all citizens and tourists. The existing facility on the site has been reconstructed to create a new spatial attraction and raise the level of service, and a green square connects the area to the nearby forest around the Grand Park Hotel Rovinj and the Zlatni Rt Park Forest.
The design element of the building is a white concrete brick wall that alternates between full and semi-open segments created by a specific way of stacking the brick. Natural light-colored materials were used in the interior - stone on the floors, wooden paneling on the walls and interior elements.
