Worldwide tourist destinations have common features. The customer searches for beauty, adventure and hospitality. In order to give a destination a unique character, it is necessary to provide a local identity within the self-contained resort. Local art, colours, vegetation and fauna would ideally guide the design.
Current luxury definitions will be shifted in the future from exclusive items towards wellness and longevity of the body and mind, creating a rediscovery of our deep bond with nature. Green will be the new gold. A lifestyle of health and sustainability will replace the need for consumption.
Current tourist attractions consume excessive amounts of energy and natural resources. The goal here is to develop a sustainable resort, setting new standards for energy efficient tourism. Constructed on zero emission principles characterised by zero carbon and zero waste, the resort will simultaneously maintain the highest quality of life and luxury.
Relying on renewable energy sources, this development will promote social responsibility and the protection of the natural environment. Implementing intelligent building technologies such as interactive shading devices, natural day lighting and ventilation systems, as well as the use of locally sourced materials, ensures that these targets will be met.
