Located amongst the Gavi vineyards, right in the heart of the La Raia farm, lies Borgo Merlassino. A rural resort combining traditional agricultural activity with new accommodation facilities: La Raia B&B, the La Raia Foundation headquarters, warehouses, laboratories for the Waldorf school and a reading hall. The genesis of the refurbishment and transformation of the former hamlet starts from the pre-existing structures. It was promptly decided that, rather than the actual buildings, it was the character and quality of the relevant spaces between the structures that needed ample renovation. The design statement envisaged contamination and contradiction as a strong structuring identity of the Site. The use of rammed-earth walls, the choice of traditional colours of buildings in Liguria and the reinterpretation of traditional building techniques have jointly attributed a new character to the hamlet. The senses of time, the scale, as well as the balance between old and new were the real motif of the design.

Harbored in serene green hillocks of the tea plantation area in northeast Bangladesh, Moulvi Bazar, “Dusai Resort & Spa” is the first of its kind destination resort in the country.
The complex exudes the essence of a traditional village with its formation along the slope of the hills. Existing trees shape out the setting of the cottages, so that the surrounding nature and contour site remain untouched. The resort showcases a hybrid construction system of traditional tea estate bungalows and standardized concrete construction. The structures sit on slender concrete frames anchored to ground raising the structure above ground. A mixed truss system of wood and metal makes roof framing with soft thatch cover. Local technology and materials with local workmanship have been extensively used here.

The brief from the client was to create a fresh, resort style family home.
Due to the warm climate, the extraordinary amount of sunny days on the Gold Coast and the property’s location on the regions Riviera it was important to spread as much of the living area to outside as possible. At the same time, it was just as important to blend the outdoor and the internal area together with the extensive use of toughened clear glass. Glass pool fencing helps to create a true resort style residence whilst not compromising on the intimacy that the owner should feel with their home. The house looks out over the waterway system that attracts so many people to the area, making it possible to park your car out the front of the house and have your boat docked in the backyard. The river system is a network of waterways that link the entire region together and, for most small boats, allows access to the ocean.
