Site Justification

Ecotel
The Site is chosen to be marine water front. To get the
essence of bubbles thesite is taken right in the sea and
the main block is placed at the coast. the site is assumed
to have a quick drop in depth as we move into the ocean
from the coast.

This brings us opportunity to create a corridors which


are partially submersed in sea. Also, the users of the
Admin building will have a pleasant experience.
