Authors’ Comment

The "M Building" project propose a high-rise hybrid building, innovative and sustainable, implying a mixed-use functional layout - hotel, vacation apartments and office spaces / business center. The complex design and theoretical approach make the building an important urban landmark.
The building site is situated at the administrative border between Constanta (important city on the Black Sea coast) and Mamaia (well-known resort on the Black Sea shore). The place is privileged, being a peninsula with splendid visibility towards and from Constanta and Mamaia. Its form and site make the plot adequate to a high-rise landmark.
The concept of the architectural composition consists on dynamism by simplicity, making a subtle reference to a sail form.
The horizontal volume contains the reception/access area for the whole building and the related common areas for the hotel and business center.
The 30-storey tower contains the hotel area (the linear sub-volume towards Mamaia), the apartments area and the office spaces (the linear sub-volume towards Constanta). At the highest floor can be founded the splendid view sky-bar.
