The key has been found in using components that are specific to the lighthouse: the boats that follow it as a reference point and the light emitted to recall them. The peculiar 360 degrees light ray set the generative scheme for the new settlement and give rise to the morphology of the project, while the boats, recalled from the sea, find a safe and calm refuge on the cliffs, protected by the lighthouse influence. Preserving the landscape avoiding architectures that might be in conflict with the existing situation, chosing respectful volumes and scales for the site, in harmony with the surrounding. Thinking about attractive and high performance solutions not only able to activate the turism engine but also able to contribute to develope sustainable tourism and an intelligent and sensitive use of coastlines.
