The overall architectural concept is one of a modern bulding with some clasical elements in the form of renders, colours and shapes. The result is a building with vibrant mediterranean orange and white collours set against the strong lines of the stone coloured roof. The top level terraces peek through the eaves in bold triangular shapes.The detailed ironmongery on the balconies are reminiscent of a more classical style.

All apartments, including the studio-type apartments, have their own terraces, sheltered by the eave of the roof. Maximum use of light in all apartments has been made by incorporating large high quality PVC windows.

The building has five floors plus an additional sixth floor containing the maisonette-style apartments. There is no basement. The construction is monolithic – concrete and steel, using a system of construction that is based on a beamless structure. Ceramic bricks will be used for the walls, which will be protected from the elements on the outside by the necessary thermo-insulation, in conformity with current standards. The internal walls will be treated with materials using dry techniques. The facades will be formed by using mineral hydro-insulation materials, stone encasing, metal and other materials which blend with the architectural design. The joinery will be from PVC with thermo-material which will contribute to the environmentally friendly nature of the building.

The necessary communication and security systems, installations of cable TV and internet, as well as air-conditioning systems are incorporated into the design.

The access to the plot is through the security-attended entrance from the street on the south side. The access for cars is also from the south, alongside the southern façade of the building. Within the plot boundaries, there is open-air parking for 16 cars. The area around the car park will be landscaped with trees and shrubs. Entrance to the building is situated in the south where a small hallway leads to the staircase and the elevator. Access to the apartments will be controlled via the entrance with an allocated area for security staff. There is also a separate enntrance on the East side which leads to the beach.

The garden will be landscaped using flowers and shrubs, which are typical for the region. There is a swimming pool in the north side of the residence, which is surrounded by a recreational area with sunbeds and umbrellas. There is also a children’s area in near proximity to the pool.
