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.

The grand structure features several discs both above and below water. The central tower adjoins a saucer-shaped space approximately five to seven meters above sea level with another mobile one that is generally stationed about ten meters underwater. The lower deck has the ability to resurface above water in the event of an emergency. Otherwise, guests can enjoy one of the twenty-one suites in the lower disc that offers comfort with the additional visual benefit of the natural marine environment. It will be lovely to explore the depths of the ocean while taking advantage of the warm climate. [source]
