Is it supposed to be an aqueduct or a coliseum like this one in Rome?? Indeed one Design hotel. La Plage du Pacifique was designed by Kristin Green and is still under construction. The concrete structure was featured as part of the collection of notable architectural remains by Australian photographer Peter Bennetts. His photographs give the impression that the structures are ancient ruins, surrounded by native pandanus trees and rosewood trees.
Design hotel made of concrete
That Design hotel is located in the South Pacific, on the beach on Vanuatu Island, an archipelago over a thousand miles east of northern Australia. La Plage du Pacifique Hotel with its 18 guest villas offers a refuge for guests who are looking for a vacation in paradisiacal tranquility and in beautiful nature. A restaurant with a roof garden, glass veranda, swimming pool and spa area are available. The project is almost complete and traces of life can already be found here.
Design hotel resembles an aqueduct
The coast is exposed to constant trade winds and frequent cyclones. Therefore, the respective constructions should be built robust, solid and hurricane-proof. The main material for the construction of the villas and hotel complexes was concrete. The antique-looking archways and the networked stairwells represent an amazing composition of architectural elements that might even astonish Escher. The thick concrete walls offer protection against the wind and provide plenty of shade during the hottest days.
La Plage D’hôtel du Pacifique – pure romance
Kristin Green Architecture’s concrete villas are cut to length and passively cooled – one goal of the project is to use natural cross ventilation. The facilities in the villas are custom built. The pool area in La Plage D’hôtel du Pacifique is inspired by the ancient Roman thermal baths – namely by the ruins of the Roman Villa Hadriana in Tivoli.
