Alacati Aegean Breeze Resort

Izmir, Turkey

Inspired by the breezes of the Aegean Sea, the motion of gulls in flight, and the natural patterns of the landscape, the design captures the spirit of the region's sailing and surfing culture, and creates a level of intimacy and exclusivity intended to attract tourists from around the world. The master plan and concept fosters a beach-side resort experience that emphasizes views of the sea, while the composition of the hotel and villas focuses on the arid, rocky landscape.

The main attraction is the 102,000-SF marine park, which includes a multi-flume marine mountain and pool. The ground floor of the 134,000-SF (12,500-SM) hotel contains boutique stores, a hotel business center, and a beauty center, while the lower level offers a 48,500-SF (4,500-SM) fitness center and spa, an indoor sky-lit pool club, hotel dining, and retail.
