The settlement of Souda with its port, is an important center of arrival and departure of visitors for the city of Chania. The port of Souda is also engaged in commercial activity, which is directly connected to the industrial zone of Souda, the "Mills of Crete", a flour factory, which was founded in the area in 1928. The waterfront extends north of the settlement and includes, at its western part the small port and at its eastern part the commercial - passenger port, while in the middle there is public space with vegetation. Parallel to the coastal zone, is the main road of Souda, which is a strong boundary between the waterfront and the settlement. However, the public space at its current state, remains residual and fragmented, as the individual parts that make it up are not sufficiently connected to each other, while there is also the issue of connecting the waterfront with the city. The aim of this dissertation is the redesign of the waterfront from the area of "Kato Souda" to the settlement main square and the port, focusing on the landscape and the public space and with the aim of its unification and its connection with the settlement, in order to form a strong nucleus of public activities and attract visitors - tourists and residents of the area.
