Calzarello Tower

Callzarello is a leisure and touristic spot on the east coast of Corsica. The building is isolated but not far away from the main touristic focuses and next to the mouth of the Fium’Orbu river in the middle of an endless sandy beach. This protected environment offers an exceptional and privileged location to carry out activities related with tourism. The preliminary design attempts to give the owners an idea of how to materialize their dreams.
  
The tower must be an iconic attractor. It gets rid of their annexed volumes and its structure is undressed leaving the tower as it is. The purpose is to let people feel the purity and majesty of the tower while it opens towards its surroundings. The rehabilitation of the decks and the roofs creates a close-to-open gradient of spaces giving the user different possibilities of experience with several degrees of communication with the environment.  The gradient is completed with a light structure next to the tower.
