Villa Xeri Club HotelEdit profile
The program was to design a luxury hotel for for the government of Azerbaijan. The Concept: The proposal originates in the top of the hill looking to maximize the panoramic view towards the Caspian Sea. With a strong gesture we extend the project creating a panoramic pedestrian bridge that becomes a slender, tall, transparent and light emanating building which is implanted in the lower part of the site. This building is the “lighthouse` from the Baku Resort Hotel that it is going to be the icon in the bay of the Caspian Sea. The design also consists of an organic skin that works as a unifier element between the spaces of the resort incorporating natural light. This skin gives the Resort an innovative character and a series of opening which are part of the geometric language of the cover and the buildings form. Protect at the same time the visitors from the sometimes inhospitable conditions. The skin becomes an element that appears in strategic points of the schema offering the visitors different levels of circulation, views, recreation and meditationThe conceptual idea is to have a project that belongs to the place but no passes overseen, stays in your mind for ever and not only by the people of Azerbaijan also for the Caspian Sea travelers. The Site It is situated in the Caspian Sea bay. The topography offers a privileged panoramic view and open to 180 degree. The site has great views and sometimes inhospitable conditions like wind, dust and high temperatures. The coast is oriented on the south-east side of the plot and the road, which communicates the resort with the rest of the city, on the northwest side.
