Abstract [en]

The site and subject of this thesis is the Marine garden, situated on the Black sea coast in the city of Varna in Bulgaria.

This thesis deals with the detachment of city – park – sea coast, and the diminishment of a park. It is a current and fast growing problem, which demands for long term, well-investigated solutions.

The project consists of a redevelopment scheme, repurposing of areas and new design additions, where several specific issues are targeted – accessibility and movement, functionality and activities, and vegetation and planting. Three main areas are in focus – the Seaside promenade with its piers, the Wall and the Panoramic promenade, and the "Saltanat" area.

The initial research is based on several aspects including: characterising the park and adjoining city fabric, analysing the target issues and defining specific problems in the park, seaside promenade and beach.

The design solutions for these problems are general solutions, which could be adapted to a specific location. The solutions include the park areas, beachfront furniture, terraces and stairs, piers and the shoreline elements.

As a result of the interventions, the environment is improved drastically, while regaining the original appearance of the garden, thus reweaving and uniting it with the urban fabric.
