"Banyan Tree Corniche Bay", designed by Forster and Partner from London is a luxury resort-hotel and spa, due to completion in 2010. The master plan is for a discreet and environmentally intelligent architecture that blends harmoniously with the lush and extensive landscape.
Sustainable design principles are at the heart of the architectural approach, ensuring that the masterplan is not only energy efficient, but also helps regenerate the landscape.
"Green fingers of lush vegetation extend down towards the sea, with a series of contemporary buildings inserted amid tropical plantings to create an architecture that at once responds to the contours of the landscape and recedes into the green totality. Forming a sculptural family, dramatic undulating timber-shingle roofs unify the built elements and reinvent island architecture. Combined, these elements provide an idyllic haven in a luxuriant tropical garden, a pervading sense of tranquility and luxurious relaxation"
...Tranquility and Luxurious relaxation...
"Volcanic rock collected from the very site will be used, anchoring the resort to its surroundings, and other natural materials such as timber shingles, vegetation and water are other dominant features. The striking wave-like, curving roofs are designed for optimum natural ventilation, and to collect rainwater for treatment and reuse. Solar power will be harnessed and electric vehicles will be available for transport around the site."
This looks close to my dream house. Only, do cut the budget into 2, and repeat the maths till you're down to a small realistic one;)
