http://www.worldarchitecturenews.com/index.php?fuseaction=wanappln.projectview&upload_id=15157La-Strada Commercial Promenade is located in Nabq Bay Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. The project concept is consistent with the Nabq development vision which promotes providing high density mix of hotels and residences to support the incoming tourist population.
La-Strada's design is based on the integrating diverse human experiences and providing a forum for sharing these experiences. This concept was central to all design levels in the project
On the master plan, creating multiple piazzas housing outdoor activities, restaurants, cafes, and small shops is central to the initial concept. The piazzas are designed with different shapes on several levels and are surrounded by buildings of different architectural treatments. These piazzas are connected by pedestrian paths, which cross each other creating rich spatial experiences between different retail spaces. The architecture of the buildings enhances this further.
