A unique feature of the resort hotel will be its sweeping figure-eight form – a design that secures voids within the building to maximize the impression of spaces while offering maximum panoramic views of its beautiful surroundings. The concept of the project is a strip of ‘healing or recreation’ and the design takes inspiration from the organisms living deep under the sea and based on the ecological structure of the plankton.
