Text description provided by the architects. Located in the Amburan region of Baku and sprawled across an area of 58 decares, the former Amburan Beach Club catered to a capacity of 1500 guests. No longer able to meet the needs of the present, however, the beach club became outdated and fell short of meeting the needs of its customers, particularly in terms of service, due to spatial shortcomings. Without modifying it, the existing plan has been ameliorated; moving from the idea of spreading the beach amenities centered solely on the beach and pool areas to the entire property, the existing design was thus reevaluated and renovated.  The project sought to assign new functions to the existing obsolete buildings on the circumference of the property; through small interventions and changes made to their façades, the said buildings have been made invisible within the overall architectural views. As part of this intervention, the central pool has been preserved and the restaurant building around it has been upgraded through the addition of new service units.
