The winning concept – ‘The necklace’ – considers travel and access in a fresh way, rising from the ground, providing circulation and amenities in 3 dimensions rather than focusing on buildings. The elevated walkway creates many opportunities at the same time as addressing areas within the brief. The aim is to create a platform on which the development can expand with flexibility, with limited impact on the immediate and global environment whilst being future-proofed against sea-level rises or tidal surges. A unique benefit is the raised deck which provides a great vantage point with 360 degree ocean views.
