The building located near the entrance to the city will strike for its historical imprint revised in a modern and rational key to comply with the current requirements. The new construction will become a new landmark which will interact with the existing ones integrating with the environment and creating a unique and exlusive model with a particular focus on the lake.
The building will be oriented along south-east/north-west axis and will find itself on the top of the commercial street of Abrau Durso; as a type it wil resemble mediaeval and Renaissance Tuscan buildings; it will have an internal court-yard, open to the city and accessible to pubblic being a pubblic place where the function of a hotel will blend with commercial functions and those of a restaurant/place of entertainment.
The Tuscan historical mediaeval architecture will serve as an architectural reference to the project, a mix of the Italian culture and glamour and the Oriental charm, without leaving aside the main peculiarity of the zone, that is wine and the culture of French wine and champagne cellars; the finishings and the components will keep up to the most modern interntional standards.

The absolute quality of the construction will have in view both the requirements of the building site, the short building deadlines and the future cultural and economic costruzione of the area. The intervention plan should be conceived as an “Ecosystem”. From the construction tipology, to the materials, to the components, to the use and the exploitation of the energetic and natural resources up to the waste reclamation, all should be oriented at the ecological principles and sustainability.
The materials will be obtained from the resources present on the territory and the construction techniques, the materials and the technological components should be perceived as “open” systems which can be brought up to date and implemented accordding to new requirements and international tendencies.
