Entry Description

CR Shimei Bay International Marina Club is located in central Shimei Bay of Hainan. BYAL is the architectural & signage design consultant. CR Company aims to create a landmark in this region. The 3400 sqm marina club will be the major attraction of Hainan.

The design inspiration is a pair of orca whales leaping out from the water and charging towards the ocean. It symbolizes the sailing of the yachts. The roof top design is flowing, echoing the silhouette of the waves. It is set in a vertical axis and links the natural landscape with the building. The marina club blends seamlessly into the environment. The elevated open space between the pair of orca whales is the ideal location to enjoy the spectacular view of the natural scenery. The natural environment serves as the canvas of the beautifully designed buildings. Appreciating the view from a sailing yacht is a memorable experience.
