Zaha Hadid Architects has designed a new mixed-use scheme, the Jesolo Magica Hotel Business Centre, for Venice, Italy.

The complex will include a five-star hotel, office space and a shopping precinct with a nightclub and conference centre.

The development will sit between Jesolo town centre and the sea, and face Roma Destra street.

A retail centre, spread over two floors, will be flanked by landscaped car park spaces and public spaces including a gym and nightclub.

A hotel with a conference centre and health spa, office block and restaurant will also be created.

The structure has a glazed roof and resembles a flower petal with flowing lines that rise up from the ground in the south west, featuring many folds and curves.

The gallery will be converted into a piazza which is the main axes of circulation.

The hotel offers views of the nearby Venice Lagoon and is the final petal.
