Ecological Beach House - Saltpond

P700 Ecological beach houseimpressionThe appropriate use of materials in coastal architecture is a recurrent theme, especially in relation to a new generation of hotels, villas and resorts.

This is so completely integrated into the surrounding environment as to be scarcely noticeable. Instead of replicating all the air-conditioned conveniences of city life, it embraces the simple and the basics of the local setting. Water in the vicinity is integrated in the room climate control system and in the installation architecture.
