Benidorm Seafront

Video: Benidorm West Beach Promenade / OAB

[ ?posts_id=4142649&dest=-1]Carlos Ferrater and Xavier Martí Galí of OAB designed a promenade as a transit area that would separate the user from the various problems currently arising at its seafront and provide more accessibility to the beaches, creating a place with its own lifestyle.  By recreating the shape of cliffs and waves, the project organically developed unusual convex and concave spaces.  These honeycombed surfaces generate areas of light and shadow and become a series of platforms and levels for play, leisure, and meditation.  The promenade was constructed with only white concrete, incorporating the benches and street furniture in varied shapes, finishes, textures, and colors.Video: Studio Banana TV
