Cala Gonone Waterfront

The project recognizes the seafront of Cala Gonone as the terminal of the urban system behind it, and at the same time the border line between the city and  the sea, between nature and artifice.


 A series of ramps connect the two paths at each urban axis. This complex linear system also has the task of joining two major points of the city: to the south the archaeological park with the aquarium, and to the north the tourist port that will be built shortly. Precisely at this last point, a huge wooden-clad ramp connects the higher level of the city route to the lower level of the beach and the future port.

Studio Benaim worked on the Cala Gonone Waterfront competition. The proposed project was placed fourth, and was designed by the team: André Benaim, Fabio Azzato, and CAP studio, and Aei progetti.
