Regina Dell Acqua Resort
The 5 * hotel Regina del Aqua is built «in front of the sea» in a 10.000m2 steep sloped site, in Kefalonia island. Except the total landscape study, concerning the functional and aesthetic design approach of the entire surroundings of the hotel, executed by the LRA studio, there was a problem of the aesthetic improvement of the 11 meter high retaining wall on the front boundary of the property. The LRA studio design proposes the plasticizing of the wall through a series of artificial rocky formations combined with dense planting and cascaded water. This boundary is today the hotel’s landmark.
