Detailed design phase

Set among sand, sea and rocky terrain, the resort’s Main Building eliminates physical and visual barriers by forming a relationship with its surroundings and blurring the distinction between manipulated and actual topography. The building accommodates the resort’s main food and beverage outlets, front and back-of-house areas, and public and leisure facilities. The building attempts to tackle the resort industry’s largest obstacle, “how can program adapt to seasonality?” The building’s unique temporal arrangement of program addresses this obstacle. In embracing topography, the building experience is intensified by the different circulation paths, relative to distance and time.
