  1. Waterfall Retreat, Asia

    The dramatic waterscapes and tea plantations are the key visual references of the retreat’s surroundings.

    With their green roofs the buildings are truly embedded into the terraced landscape, minimizing their visual impact and maintaining the landscape history of the site, ensuring the continuation of the tea plantation. Another advantage

    is the cooling effect by the thick layer of soil and the evaporation of the plants.

    The design celebrates these attractions by being fully embedded into the terraced landscape providing uninterrupted views over the lake, without compromising the privacy of the neighbouring buildings. The retreat is complemented with a spa at the waterfall, treehouse suites, floating suites and a floating bar.

    The design of the project has been developed in close collaboration with Luxury Frontiers.

    Tri Lanka is a 10 room sustainable design hotel located on Koggala lake near Galle in Southern Sri Lanka. The project design is based on the Fibonacci series and is characterized by the sentient Ficus tree at the crown of the site located on a circular plateau. The project has panoramic views of the surrounding lake, and the green roofed villas are nestled into the hillside follow a spiral form up past the yoga pavilion and library to the cinnamon clad water tower at the top of the hill. Nomadic resorts assisted the client with the green roof design, the landscape design and the project realization. The project was completed in November 2015.
