DMA were invited by a leading international developer to design a luxury 5-star hotel complex within a larger costal masterplan. The design has been carefully planned to ensure all elements of the project face the sea of Marmara to provide guests with an immediate connection to the
sea and dramatic views. The contemporary design references its Ottoman heritage.
The hotel and aparthotel are clearly differentiated in the design. The 150 bed apart hotel is defined by the wave of balconies of different
frequency meeting the shore. The luxury hotel, below the waves, is defined by a delicate screen of bubbles and rocks stopping the waves on the shore. The scheme incorporates a range of retail, spa and leisure facilitates, in addition to ballroom and conferencing.
