Project Alida is a 55 metre fast displacement yacht being built on speculation by Heesen for delivery in June 2017. Construction is progressing nicely with the hull and superstructure joined in September 2015.
Her naval architecture is by Van Oossanen Naval Architects with exterior design by Omega Architects. Bannenberg and Rowell is responsible for the interior design of Project Alida. Here, renowned interior designer Dickie Bannenberg gives us his view on some of the key design elements.
"Project Alida started life as 'Project Coast' in our studio," said Bannenberg. "A relaxed vibe, with an emphasis on casual, slightly informal finishes – the sawn and bleached oak for example giving a feeling of driftwood-meets-weatherboarding."
"Teamed with textured weaves and tactile architectural finishes, grasscloths and white and grey Arabascatta marble, the interior is calm and anti-bling."
