D- Maris Bay
History & Story
Briefly D- Maris Bay Architecture from its Architecture Mr. Hasan Mingü “The particularity of D- Maris Bay would be the variety of its places and the quality in every corner. The unique nature where the hotel is situated enabled us to create different indoor and outdoor places, each of which was designed with a unique concept. The rebuilding of D- Maris Bay was not redressing for a better look but changing it completely. Despite the scale and complexity of the project every part was detailed with specialattention. We could have the chance to embody different projects in one project and enable the customer to experience different atmospheres in one hotel.
Therefore the planning and renovation was not very easy, it took us almost 2 years to complete. D- Maris Bay was designed as a big scale boutique hotel, by taking every small detail into the consideration. The first objective was to simplify the form and space layout. We paid special attention to the material and furniture choice and tried to refurbish the hotel to the highest standard. As a designer, I would expect a hotel to be visually fulfilling. As a guest, the comfort of the room, cleanness, the quality of service and food are the most important aspects. In the beach resorts, since people spend most of the day on the seaside, a relaxing beach with good facilities is very important.”
