The steel structures becomes the plantation ground for the new attached corals. The corals which will be attached could be collected from the sea bottom around touristic areas and be brought to the eReef for re-planting and recovery. Specially positioned light posts will illuminate the artificial reef by request which could be made by the public using a smartphone app. Using the app one could also find relevant information, contact the reef and make donations and help to restore the reef to it's former glory.

Restoration of a the ruins and remains of an old British Army Officers Club done with care, respect and delicacy. An old and crumbling building with not only a cosmetic face lift in it's future but also an ecologically oriented design. The mindset was to bring the community in by replacing the fences with terraces and opening the garden to the public. Then the guests will see the old meeting the new with a fading touch of glass and light. A gradient of square roofing elements in a pixel like manner crate an opaque center for the hall and an increasing transparency elements near the restored areas.
