FGLA 2019 Merit: Z9 Resort
May 14, 2019
The architects believe that the natural context should play the most important role in designing resorts; the buildings to play a supporting role. Good detailed design and planning will frame liveable architectural spaces, like the common area at Z9 Resort, for guests to enjoy the view. The property was designed and built to follow the topography, lightly ‘touching’ the land and water.
At the resort, the 3R concept (reduce, reuse and recycle) was applied throughout the construction process and material selections. A lightweight steel structure was used for a ‘lighter’ impact on-site, as well as a faster and cleaner building process, without the need for heavy construction machinery.
