Located on the edge of the harbor and open to the air on all sides, the site captures all the scents of both the sea and surrounding vegetation. Harbour traffic adds the tang of marine oil and diesel. Constant free movement of air refreshes the olfactory environment and orients both to changes in the time of day and the weather.
