Wadi Rum Resort by Oppenheim Architecture and Design

 

Designed by Oppenheim, the Wadi Rum Resort is a stunning project. "Where desert sand meets desert stone", harsh linear shapes are carved from the rustic surface of the rock, creating immense openings to rooms and pools, enabling light to flood in.

The sleek lines really break up this environment and the water features aid in transforming this otherwise inhabitable landscape into a paradise.

"To live in harmony with the natural world, we must learn to re-engage with the land. Earnest and timeless, the architecture is simultaneously powerful, yet comfortable; primative, yet innovative; casual, yet elegant; raw, yet refined."

Just check out the artwork below and it is seriously WOW- I-WANT-TO-LIVE-THERE spectacular:
