Text description provided by the architects. Part of the 1550000 m2 recovery and restructuring project aimed at creating a public and mixed use complex surrounding the harbor of the ex military Arsenale at La Maddalena, House of the Sea is a glass and basalt prism that cantilevers over the water. Almost 2000 m2, the new construction hosts a large event and conference hall suspended 6 metres above water that looks out towards the extraordinary panorama of the Gallura.

A dislocated geometry put in evidence by the structural feat and the modular bee-hive like facade made of opaline glass characterize the new landmark that reinterprets, in contemporary key, the relation between the power of the surrounding natural elements and Italy’s traditional military architecture, in the rigorous forms and strategy of mimetic insertion that allows to see without being seen.

The interiors realized with high quality Sardinian and Italian materials were designed as flexible spaces able to host different programs (meeting rooms, conferences, events, exhibitions) and to guarantee a strong visual relationship with the surrounding landscape and the other activities within the Arsenale.
