JUMEIRAH VITTAVELI, MALDIVES
The Jumeirah Maldives is similarly isolated but the aim of the design scheme was to create a sense of community. The hotel stand adjacent to the small village. In order to honor the living heritage of the island and give back to the local community, the hotel decided to create a connecting corridor. Local stone materials were used and lighting was employed to reflect and highlight these textures, enhancing the indigenous building culture of the island.
