adjacent spaces of hotel and apartments, suitable for the warm climate of the island. Hence, these gardens enhance the quality of adjacent interior space and create a landscape for the users with infrastructure like amphitheater and exterior bar. Sun city development aims to offer its services to the guests and residents with the use of a wide range of accommodation options. The hotel will have four restaurants, conference hall, dance hall, wellness centre with indoor swimming pool, external pools, tennis court and many more facilities. The external pools are distributed at the centre of the concave shape of the overall development in three levels.
The residential part of the development includes villas and a multi-storey apartment building whose form is integrated in the design and the general master plan of the hotel. The residential design of Sun City mansions development follows the overall design concept with compact white volumes oriented towards sea view in relation to the exterior hotel facilities but with private courtyards designed according to their plot size. The gradual articulation of levels of the landscape around the swimming pool creates an adventurous, harmonic and private exterior space.
The general construction system is reinforced concrete besides the curvilinear steel structure of the hotel's facade. The concrete and brick structure is insulated on the exterior while photo-voltaic systems are integrated on the roof of the hotel, apartments and mansions to deliver, in terms of energy efficiency, an A category bio-climatic building. For instance the mansions' roof-slap have a planar inclined part that accommodates the infrastructure of photo-voltaic and solar system.
The overall design of Sun City aims to deliver an integrative system of functional, bio-climatic touristic and residential facilities in a unified system.
