Akti Oneirou Luxury Camping is located in the green landscape of the peninsula of Sithonia, in front of the homonymous crystal-clear beach of Chalkidiki. The aim of the design was to create a new welcoming environment for the visitors and also develop new outdoor spaces in order to host the summery activities of the campers. The basic idea was to create new facilities with forms and material that integrate into the natural landscape.  The optimization of the circulation as well as the safety of the customers were primary principles for the new design. The new layout for the reception area suggests welcoming service and waiting areas to the visitors. An outdoor area across the reception is developed in order to accommodate the multiple activities that take place at the campsite. A small outdoor cinema as well as a new children’s corner are designed in an L shape in order to create a common square that will host all the outdoor events. The reception area is integrated with the area of outdoor activities through crossing paths and common morphological design principles.
