In recentyears, the relationship between the city and the sea is redefined around the world to meet the needs of the ever-swelling "fronts" of economy, society and culture. This thesis concerns the design of sailing and fishing facilities in the coastal zone of Eleusis.
The selected plot follows the pedestrian seaside promenade of the city, while the rest belongs to the port organisation of Eleusis (O.L.E.) and part of it is granted for the operation of a sailing club. The design meets the requirements of the existing association and even to the expansion of people, activities and space functions. The planned spaces animate the area and create an attraction for the public to form an urban, leisure, sport and commercial core framed by the sea and the green.
A basic part of the design and startup of this is the determination of the coastline. East of the existing marina, a second one is created. It is decided that the first marina caters for adults sailors on ships offshore and the second hosts the fishing club and its needs. The third marina is destinated for younger sailors in the south part of the intervention.
The buildings’ location is resulted indirectly from the surrounding area. North and west, placed the shopping, the fishing club while east and south, the fish market is located. The sailing club building is located between the junior sailing marina and the marina of adult sailors. The buildings include secretarial and waiting areas, offices, toilets, changing rooms, sports facilities-gymnasiums, classrooms, storage rooms, workshop, private lounge, restaurant and outdoor areas.
