The Red Sea Project, located on the west coast of Saudi Arabia, has revealed photos of its new complex called Hotel 12 on the island of Ummahat AlShaykh, the design is carried out by the British architectural firm Foster + Partners.
According to the images presented, the new destination will have a series of vacation homes with wooden roofs, restaurants and rest areas that will be spread throughout the island. The hotel will also include a series of suites that will be located on stilts in the Red Sea, access to them will be through a circular passage that will be shaped like a ring.
For Foster + Partners it was important to design a friendly development that is not harmful to the environment, this because the Red Sea Project aims to be sustainable.
“We are following a 100% renewable energy policy in the destination, to generate and store energy exclusively from the use of renewable sources. We plan to implement a range of policies that include zero landfill waste, 100% carbon neutrality and a total ban on single-use plastics, ”said Gerard Evenden, head of study at Foster + Partners.
So far no more details about the project have been released and when will the building works for this tourist development begin.
It should be noted that the British studio has been selected to design two of the three Ummahat AlShaykh islands in the Red Sea Project archipelago, which is named Coral Bloom. While Kengo Kuma and Associates is designing Ummahat AlShaykh.
