3 Component Matrix
The component matrix has been created for the 305 hectare project site of Olviya on the Montenegro coast. The following section outlines the optimum mix of facilities and services required and will identify the space devoted to each element including all residential; leisure; and commercial aspects.
The component matrix has been developed as a direct result of the market study for the Olviya site and Montenegro, conducted by GAA-Marta Consulting and Select Contracts.
The component matrix will evolve with the other deliverables set out in the conceptual design phase, including the master plan, footprints and business plan. All figures and estimated sizes are accurate representations of the concept at this stage, and may change as a direct result of positioning these features onto the master plan and with the laying out the internal footprints.
3.1 Conceptual Ideology
The concept behind the development will be to create an elegant mixed-use resort destination on the beautiful coastline of Montenegro, which will capture residents, visitors and investors imagination.
