as summer approaches for many countries that have been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, thought turns to how coastal areas will look in 2020. rome-based designer umberto menasci offers his solution titled ‘SafeBeach‘. combining partitioned areas for relaxing in with stringent social distancing measures, the project aims to allow people to still visit the beach while staying safe.

as imposed lockdowns begin to gradually ease off in many places, umberto menasci‘s visualizations envision a ‘new normal’. the idea centers around a series of open air rooms, resembling a beach-side hotel. proposed to be built from plexiglass or lexan, each box contains two sun loungers and a large umbrella.

a generous distance is provided between each box, with access to the open-air room intended to be managed in shifts. by respecting social distancing rules yet still preserving a summer tradition of going to the beach, SafeBeach proposes a cautious way to enjoy the warmer weather.
