The project itself resolves the height difference between the city and the sea, with public routes and promenades parallel to the canal, linked by steps and lookout-terraces. For the car park façade on the lower level, Escofet manufactured walls with a tooth section in dark grey pre-cast stone, interrupted by the link steps. Using the same material and finish as these panels, we also produced the Socrates benches, large-format planters and the Net ashtrays. COR-TEN steel Bin litter bins were also installed throughout the outdoor space. The America´s Cup project was designed in conjunction with Escofet in 2006 and 2007.
