ACI Marina Rovinj is located in an attractive tourist area of Monte Mulini, near the Rovinj city center. The said space is characterized by a public park, the Rovinj waters overlooking the medieval town center and a rich tourist, sports and recreational facilities of the site – a promenade, a public beach and high category hotels. 

The functioning of the marina takes place through two conceptual levels: a representative and a service level. The first one is the part the yachtsmen come into contact with (with a reception, restaurant/café-lounge bar, agencies and shops), and the part that interacts with the users of the public city spaces and tourist facilities (pedestrians on the promenade, Hotel Park guests etc.). The second one functions as a customer service area for the marina users.

Via the promenade, pedestrians are directed to the shops and commercial contents, away from the service and technical spaces of the marina, and the yachtsmen are guided to nautical contents with a clear signage system. Incoming traffic from the city is discreetly lowered to the coast level where access for intervention and delivery vehicles is provided. 

It is the site context that served as an inspiration for reflection over the redesign of the existing Marina facilities. 3LHD was in charge of the land part of the marina – the design and construction of the new building for functional services for boaters and the redesign of the roads, pedestrian areas and green landscape surfaces. 
The new Marina building will have a Yacht club with a reception, office spaces and agencies, catering facilities (café-lounge bar, restaurant), commercial and service spaces (service facilities for sailors, storage, sanitary and technical premises). The project meets the requirements for a 5 anchor marina.

The marina building is designed as a unique volume inserted into the promenade tissue visible only with a façade oriented to the coast. An exception is the restaurant/café-lounge bar with a glass façade which is located on the roof of the building and acts as an extension of the promenade contents together with seating areas, green islands and urban attractions.
