The Sand Castle is a small hotel for children located within the Costa Navarino Resort in Messinia, Greece. The hotel is inspired by the bay of Navarino itself with its never-endings dune. At the Sand Castle a child’s primary gestures while playing with sand, such as sculpting and mixing, are translated into architectural forms. Inside, the children’s private areas, designed according to their own anthropocentric scale, comprise an open neighborhood along a common area of play and creative activities. Through the interplay of spaces, colors and materials, the building acts as a field of experience and exploration. A wonderful place for kids. [source]
