THE EARTH PROJECT

Located in a quiet area with views of the mountains, The Earth project had as a special feature the challenge of integrating two basic characteristics for our design: Sustainability and user development.  For this resolution, a study of solar geometry and analysis of thermal radiation was carried out, which were used to determine the functionality of the material chosen for the skin of the façade of this project.

INSPIRATIONS & SUSTAINABILITY

Inspired by the concept of a solar eclipse "The Chambre" integrates features of traditional Ksar architecture with angled adobe walls to ensure thermal insulation, in this case, the walls have the greatest effect on the whole of the environmental building, since the chosen material will be responsible for most of the heat loss and will compensate the high and low temperatures thanks to its breathability promoting a healthy environment for users.

Using local materials to minimize environmental damage, the rammed earth structures are durable, function as a thermal regulator and acoustic insulator, providing a comfortable environment that the guest is relaxed.

DESIGN CONCEPT

Contemporary design can thrive in a traditional context; reinterpreting cultural and historical influences from the past to be reimagined as new ideas for the future. In this eco-friendly wellness resort in Morocco, the project focuses on honoring the traditional roots of the region while introducing new, sustainable ways of construction and design, creating an oasis that truly is the best of both worlds.

The concept of the Earth Project is based on the identity and sense of belonging, integrating characteristic elements of the Moroccan architecture and culture that together with the natural landscape work perfectly creating an atmosphere of serenity and harmony.
