This project is about a children summer camping and has a capacity f 120 children and children with movement difficulties.The intervention area is located on the beach of Variko, Litochoro, in the prefecture of Pieria. The coast of this prefecture and especially the area zone between Litochoro and Katerini, is an area of exceptional natural beauty, as it is located near Mount Olympus without the absence of water.
The first element that was taken into consideration during the design process was the attempt all the buildings to take advantage of the mountain and the sea view at the same time, as far as possible. This resulted in the first designed lines, parallel to the axis of the mountain and the sea, creating a dynamic motion that intersects perpendicularly the plot and linking two points of interest of the camping. One more element that was taken into account was the creation of a secondary strong motion right next to the vertical one which crosses the other necessary operations of the project and ends with the shape of a marine jetty in the sea.
More specifically, the project includes, children guest dormitories separated to boys and girls where between of them exists the relaxation area that includes a swimming pool and a playground. Subsequently, near to children houses there is the gathering area for team facilities. Above there is the sports zone with pitches, small kiosks and a movement’s restoration building. In the center of the plot there is the roofed feeding area. Furthermore, there is a parking and continuing to the other side of the site we can find the employees dormitories as well as the stables with the circular ride (rodeo). To conclude, along the entire length of the vertical road we can find small kiosks with the administration offices for the absolute control and information of children at all times.
