The study area is located in the northeastern coastal part of the city of Larnaca in Cyprus and it has a total length of 2.5 km. The area has been burdened for many decades, both visually and environmentally, with industrial uses (former oil refinery and gas depots), resulting in its gradual degradation. Also, the north-east seaside tourist areas are cut off from the rest of the city due to the interference of the existing oil tanks, and the general wide area is cut off from the sea.
The subject of the thesis is to highlight and design the wider area of the storage facilities, as well as its connection to the rest of the coastal front, and thus to the city center. The purpose of the project is to design the seaside urban area and the seaside public space. To that end, a set of local and supralocal functions and a network of urban, public, green spaces are proposed, which aim to link the study area to the wider urban tissue and the sustainable development of the city.
