The structure is made from precast modules and is anchored to a block of concrete. A walkway links the rocky coastline to the entrance of the restaurant, which opens onto an interior space with a surface area of 600 m2 over three levels descending into the sea. On the top floor, or “zero” floor, there is the reception and cloakroom, followed by a bar at the mezzanine level and then a lower floor where the restaurant, with seating for up to 100 guests, is situated. The dining room has a panoramic window with a double layer of acrylic glass looking out directly onto the seabed.
WORKING BELOW SEA LEVEL
Because of its special design and complexity, the project required a large range of high quality and technologically advanced products.
The products supplied included CONFIX*, CONFIX FIN* and REDIREP 45 RSF* to repair the concrete, epoxy resin-based products and hi-flow mortars for anchoring elements in place (such as MAPEPOXY BI*, MAPEPOXY LR*, MAPEPOXY L* and NONSETT 400*), MAPEFIX VE SF for chemical anchors, MAPEPRIMER M* epoxy primer for treating concrete substrates with surface moisture, PLANITOP FINE FINISH ultra-fine-textured skimming compound for exposed concrete, RESFOAM 1KM and RESFOAM 1KM AKS* resin for waterproofing structures subject to intense water seepage and SUPERFLYT* super-plasticising admixture for mortars. ULTRABOND MS RAPID adhesive was chosen for its high sucker effect and rapid setting properties to install the 3D ceramic tiles in the bathrooms.
