Resort XS. Interior Studio Brief, 2011

Interior Strand, Harriet Richards and Benita Simati

This studio involves an exploration of contemporary resort architecture in the South Pacific and the design of micro dwellings for resort lodging. The studio brief is to explore architecture at a micro scale and provide a sensitive solution for an untouched pacific landscape with a focus on design at a micro and interior scale.
The project site is in Navua Fiji, students will design a series of insertions in the landscape for self sufficient temporary resort style living. These dwellings will be a contemporary solution to the traditional Fijian bure structure.
The design proposition will need to consider the surrounding environment and cultural context alongside the concept of the ‘resort’.
