The project was part of a design competition for the revitalisation of the Sea Garden’s coastal alley in Varna. It was awarded First Place and the Special Prize of the Municipality of Varna.
Along the Seaside Promenade there will be a bike lane, sightseeing platforms with multi-purpose relaxation spots, and pieces of designer park furniture.
The current water cascade will be transformed to have multiple levels, each with varying circular openings, which would create a spectacle for the viewers. There will be observations decks from where the visitors can enjoy the beautiful dance of the water.
Specifically designed areas along the Seaside Promenade will provide easy access to the beach, resting spots, sightseeing platforms and showers.
The design concept includes the construction of a balneotherapy complex at the mineral water well, known to the people of Varna as the ”Hot Spring”. It will feature a hot mineral water pool, a cold water pool and several hydro-massage tubs, as well as a temperate area where the spring and sea waters meet.
The existing plant life will be enriched with new decorative species.
We have provided a solution to reinforce the slope with retaining walls made of recycled metal tubes. Cascading plants can then be grown in them that would resemble a green waterfall.
Recycled tubes will also be used to create a piece of designer outdoor furniture – solar-powered LED lamp posts.
