The project “First Alley” has been announced on an architectural contest for an urban spatial solution. The design teams have to develop the coastal area of the town of Varna, ensuring its year-round use and visits from people of all ages and different social status, as well as other solutions for the coastal infrastructural problems have been expected. This requires that all actions related to communication, engineering infrastructure, fortification facilities and building of hydro installations have to be rationalized. Finally yet importantly, the valuable plant species and the green appearance of the coast have to be preserved. The aggressive and modernistic ideas are deliberately avoided in the structure of the architectural image. For that purpose, mainly low-storey buildings are planned and the design team put emphasis on the round, unobtrusive forms of the hotel groups.
