    In the remote South of Oman there is a fishing village Shuwaimia on a 30KM virgin beach. The client is a regional developer interested in developing 1 million square meters of precious land where the mountains meet the Indian Ocean. The architect proposed working with the Earth; a low density Eco resort that will meet the triple bottom line, the economic: cheaper to build using low skilled local labor and materials and higher revenue attracting eco tourists seeking remote and authentic experiences. The environmental: working with local materials and using passive and active green energy. The social: working with and engaging the local population, giving fishermen an additional skill to be used after fishing season, expressing the local culture in the architecture and giving the new town a sense of identity and local pride.

    Working with local materials was key in making a sturdy prototype that also blends with the local architecture; old fishing nets were mixed with plaster for extra reinforcement, using local stone for flooring purposes, and traveling across Oman in search of local arts and crafts served the team with abundant choices, given the nation’s proud tradition and dedication to keeping the artisanal culture alive. When it came to powering the resort, solar panels played a major role: Solar panels harnessed electricity, a solar heater was put in place, and a solar-powered air conditioning system was introduced. Using the sun’s energy managed to reduce consumption by a staggering 30-40%, and in doing so the team cultivated a growing curiosity towards employing green energy throughout the community with various other clean energy applications.
    The result of the prototype was extremely successful, the client was very pleased with the results as we managed to reduce the construction cost by 30% and expect these figures to improve. The thick 50cm earth walls combined with the wind tower provides a very pleasant environment.

    In their final masterplan, the team aims to implement a permanent crafts center that would allow for the creation of new job opportunities for women in the local community, as well as providing an onsite training program at the local architecture college that teaches sustainable architectural practices. In the meantime, a monitoring system for the prototype has been put in place, and the data will be made available for research purposes in the future.

    SSH has designed an eco resort at one of United Real Estate Company’s (URC) projects. This project, still under development by the leading MENA real estate developer, is set along the shores of Oman’s untouched southern beaches, approximately 320 km northeast of Salalah.
    Inspired by the Iranian humanitarian architect Nader Khalili, through his brainchild Cal-Earth, SSH created this prototype. The form is designed to exemplify a type of architecture that is most desirable in a high-end, authentic, experience-seeking and adventurous tourist development.

    The Government of Primorye will help Hong Kong-listed NagaCorp resume construction of Russian casino resort near Vladivostok in the coming months by pushing through permits for foreign workers.

    According to Konstantin Shestakov, Director of Primorsky Territory’s Tourism Department, the government is keen to see progress resume on development within the Primorye gambling zone, home to Summit Ascent’s Tigre de Cristal and the recently opened Shambala.

    NagaCorp’s Naga Vladivostok is one of two more casinos due to open in 2021 alongside Diamond Fortune Holdings’ Imperial resort.

    “Due to the situation with COVID-19, [Naga] was unable to bring the workers of its contractor from China,” Shestakov said this week. “We hope that with the support of the Government and with the stabilization of the situation in the world, the investor will be able to complete the construction of a wonderful facility.“

    Shestakov confirmed that NagaCorp has completed around 60% of construction of Naga Vladivostok Phase 1, set to include a casino and concert hall within an 11-storey hotel complex, plus a water park. It was also claimed that NagaCorp has so far spent around US$84 million of it planned US$150 million Phase 1 investment.

    Ongoing travel restrictions due to the pandemic have also raised questions about the full opening of the hotel Grand Lisboa Palace, scheduled for the first quarter of 2021.

    Union workers have said construction is complete and the necessary permits were on their way, but the opening could be delayed due to the lack of visitors in Macau.
