The objective of this project is to show that a total misappropriation of a technical structure is possible and also that it can be used in a commercial way. The remit of this project is, to divert an overage oil platform from her intended use, with the primary target, to remodel it into a commercial useable entertainment island. However the current structure should be left sustainable as far as possible and should be integrated and shown in the remodeling. Due to the fact that an oil drilling rig has an enormous effective area, it is now possible, to generate facilities like hotels, restaurants, entertainment- and exhibition areas, as well as living space. Also the transport connection and the required infrastructures should be assured to fulfill the high claims of the prospective patronage. Via architectonical aspects should be visualized, that nothing advises the visitor, that he is located on an oil platform far away from the coast. Design plans, detailed plans, models and 3D studies will show how far misappropriations of structures, which have been only functionally so far, can be possible also in an economic and reasonable way
