Dead Sea Resort & Opera House in Jordan by Accent Design Group

January 17th, 2012 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Accent Design Group

The main concept in this project is to create a resort that naturally blends in this special site, by having the built up areas merge naturally with the surroundings, appearing as terraces in the landscape. These terraces, or strips, would contain the individual housing units, amidst a natural/artificial landscape of palm trees and water pools.


  • Architects: Accent Design Group
  • Project: Dead Sea Resort & Opera House
  • Location: Dead Sea, Jordan
  • Lead Architect : Elie ABS
  • Project team : Aline FADOUS,  Charbel KARAM, Luana MAHFOUZ,  Petia RATZOV, Nagham TABAJA
  • Project Consultant : Elie G. Haddad
  • Project area : 45,000 sqm
  • Type : Hotel & Resort

Interior View

The idea again is to have something that infringes as little as possible on the experience of the Dead Sea, and that would provide an antidote to the other reigning ideas of suburban recreational facilities, which create completely artificial surroundings.

Night View

The terraces would start at the bottom level of the site, rising towards the upper ‘platform’, where the project meets the highway. There, on the upper boundary of the site, two elements serve to anchor the project and to signal its presence on the highway: the hotel unit and the opera house.

Lobby View

The first element is distinguished by its basic rectangular geometry, while the other one fractures to allow a more expressive articulation of the program. Overall, the intent is to create a project that intrudes as little as possible, that discretely fits into its surroundings, and that distinguishes itself by this sensitivity to ‘place’.
