The Architecture

Green Coast is a completely unique project, one of a kind in Albania. Conceived as an ultramodern Mediterranean destination, Green Coast conveys the best experience of two of the most prestigious international architecture studios, Iraci Studio and EAA-Emre Arolat. The villas have a minimal Mediterranean style and eco-friendly construction.
The first phase is featured by a mediterranean minimalist architecture style where the natural lighting is maximized, and electricity is saved using unique shading systems known as BriseSoleil.

The use of Brisesoleil with wood materials allows a contrast between the open colors of villas and provides warmer visuals of the exterior view. Its elements break the sunrays by creating a visual game that filters direct sun exposure in addition to the enabled privacy.

The use of the area stones for the surrounding walls is another element that bridges the modern aspect of minimalism and local architecture. Stonewalls are used everywhere in the resort to divide parcels with the inner roads of the resort. Their cover is one of the protective architectural elements by granting a modern touch to their view. It serves also to hide the LED lighting.

Sidewalks imitate the beach sand so that the residents may feel as they were walking on sand to reach their home.
While in the second phase  the project architecture connects naturally with the environment, staying close to the natural texture of the rocky area where the project lies.

The colour range has been selected in line with the Mediterranean Architecture and the big facades allow for the inside and the outside space to come together and work as one. EAA-Emre Arolat Architecture, the architecture studio is highly regarded for its ability to reconcile the identity and rootedness of the context and the place within its cultural, historical, and geographic conditions, with the inescapable demands of the contemporary world to succeed in delivering a compelling design as result. Well-experienced in big-scale national and international projects, the studio prioritizes collaboration with worldwide engineering and consultancy firms. The studio has won important awards: “Mies van der Rohe” for European Architecture. Aga Khan Award for Architecture. “Museum-Designs of the Year”. EAA extends its activity to different countries of the world; the United Kingdom, Italy, Belgium, USA, Portugal, etc.
