DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
D.Butterfly Resort

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Desert Resort Development

INSPIRATION:
In an imaginary scene an untouched landscape flows under the inhabited areas and a scorching hot wind blows through. The overflowing thoughts heat up and fruits are thawed in a heat haze. The ramified conclusion at the unknown end is drowning in a ruby's charm frames a wavering mirage.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The „Desert Butterfly Resort“ is intended as an artificial oasis which can be situated in every desert landscape that leaves the nature as untouched as possible. All guest bungalows are shaped in the form of abstract butterflies. The butterflies are connected to the central structure by pedestrian bridges on two levels.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Lived-in sculpture based predominantly on air, which seams to be lost in an endless sand ocean.. This kind of architecture represents the ancient human assimilation into the desert.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Sand dunes in the Rub' al Khali, Abu Dhabi, UAE

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The entire construction of D.Butterfly Resort is based on the principle of prefabricated lightweight structures. The entire facility should stand for an advanced and sustainable technnology such as the utilization of renewable resources for air conditioning and lighting.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them. functional area 9500 sqm

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The entire form of the building is laid-out to enable a lot of high-flyer sights all around. The building outlines are designed in geometric shapes as a contrast to the organical forms of the dunes. The internal walls and the furniture design stand for the continuation of the organical movements appropriate to the desert environment.

CHALLENGE:
An abandoned plot of land overlooking the extended landscape. A piece that respects the land's natural contour can only be created by constructing a house on air. The shadows represent the single touches of the ground...
