Make Architects recently received planning approval for their luxury resort design in Hal Fehr, Malta. With a total area of 84,000m2, the high quality resort will be the most sustainable on the island with a low density footprint and a number of passive design features incorporated. This highly exclusive tourist destination, stretching Malta’s coastline, houses 216 spacious one, two and three bedroom suites with a further 12 luxury, family pavilions set in the middle of the central landscape. More images and architects' description after the break.
Designed around the spacious, lush central landscape, the site features existing mature trees, new planting, and a reinstated natural water course which flows around the perimeter. Therefore, the new seamless building will echo the walled cities found across Malta and at 16,700m2, forms just 20 percent of the resort. A dramatic rooftop walkway runs the entire length of the boundary building and offers spectacular views out across the bay and inwards towards the heart of the resort.
Stuart Fraser, Partner at Make said: "We are delighted that Hal Fehr has been granted planning permission. It's a fabulous scheme that exploits the benefits of its setting, maximizing privacy and exclusivity. Aiming to be LEED-accredited, this low-density visionary development will set new standards for tourism in Malta."
