Structural design of a hotel overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The hotel comprised of two, 25-storey towers, with a shared podium, housing communal areas and parking.

The structure is generally of reinforced concrete, flat-slab construction, founded on a piled raft. There are a number of areas where pre-stressed concrete was utilised to achieve longer spans, allowing for column free spaces whilst maintaining an efficient slimline slab depth.

This high-rise structure was stabilised against wind and seismic loads, primarily through a series of concrete walls, located within the lift and stair cores. Rigorous computer analysis was required to mitigate the need for additional shear walls, as the core was eccentric to the centre line of the structure.

A light weight steel roof structure was designed to accommodate the parametric architectural requirements of the roof.
